Camberwell College of Arts world-class Fine Art programme is comprised of four undergraduate degree courses in the disciplines of Drawing, Painting, Photography, and Sculpture. In each of these specialisations, ambitious and innovative students work towards their own highly personalised Independent Programme of Study with internationally recognized artists and critics. The Fine Art programme’s dynamic professionally-focused environment fosters creative and intellectual experimentation, confidence, and entrepreneurialism, preparing students for their chosen careers in the arts.
Through disciplinary study in Drawing, Painting, Photography, or Sculpture, students gain an acute awareness of their practices in relation to art historical and critical debates as a grounding to sophisticatedly negotiate today’s fast-paced cultural developments. The Fine Art programme at Camberwell College of Arts cultivates a confident, mature, and robust understanding of contemporary art values, and most importantly, art’s future potentials. Students are encouraged to provocatively approach Drawing, Painting, Photography, and Sculpture from a variety of viewpoints – and to activate their ideas.
At Camberwell College of Arts students learn by taking an active part on London’s international art stage, and UNIT is part of students’ Professional Practice Development. Showcasing the practices of London’s next-generation of emerging artists, UNIT features recent works by 140 artists, made in Camberwell College of Arts workshops – which host an expansive range of traditional skills-based facilities, specialist industrial fabrication equipment, as well as state-of-the-art digital, photographic, printmaking, and 3D resource centres.
Following in the tradition of Camberwell alumni – many of whom are household names today, including Turner Prize and Oscar Award winners and nominees, John Moores, Jerwood, and BP Prize winners – UNIT debuts some of the most cutting-edge young artists currently training in the UK, giving an ‘in progress’ sneak preview of the British art stars of tomorrow.
