Taught studio sessions that compliment students’ work on:
By retaining single subject degrees in Fine Art at undergraduate level, Camberwell offers students the chance to study in depth Painting, Sculpture, Photography and Drawing, while still allowing students to access cross-course teaching and facilities, as well as working with their peers in other Fine Art areas.
All undergraduate Fine Art students at Camberwell attend cross-course crits and tutorials throughout their course, even though they are primarily based in their own subject areas.
BA Drawing students have the opportunity to exhibit their work at external venues in London, with Shoreditch Town Hall and Southwark's The Biscuit Factory among previous spaces used.
Previous students have worked with artists including Polly Morgan, Saskia Olde Wolbers and Berlinde de Bruyckere and with galleries such as The Courtauld and LUPA, and during their second year students can also study overseas with the course's recent exchanges involving art schools in Bergen, Ghent, Leipzig, Madrid, Marseille and Milan.
Kelly Chorpening’s practice, which spans drawing, painting, film, installation and publishing, is not media or process specific.
For her, drawing is a conceptual realm of artistic proposal; a dimension in which illusion, materiality and structural systems converge to develop their own self-sustained, semiotic logic.
Though BA Drawing is a relatively new course, our graduates are increasingly featured in art fairs and exhibitions at venues such as The Arches Gallery, Sarah Myerscough Gallery, Studio 2.1, Vyner Street Gallery and 500 dollars gallery.
