This Post-Grad Interest Group is no longer active

Amble and sketch driven by a love for art, nature and community.

The group was led by Rachel Hogg, a recent graduate from the MA Fine Art Drawing course at Camberwell College of Arts.


Amble and Sketch is a group that met up every 3 weeks to walk, draw and build  a sense of community.

The main aim of the group was to provide an opportunity to bring creatives together and have a creative break from the normal day to day life and pressures.

Anyone who is a part of the postgrad community at UAL (both current and alumni) were welcome to join the group,and included participants who had an interest in art and nature.

Group activities alternated between informal drawing briefs, walking, ideas to spark inspiration and group crit’s to get together and discuss their work together.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictionsthey met virtually on Zoom for an online discussion and the activity brief was shared, members were then invited to go on individual walks to make work with the set brief and we then meet up to discuss our work on Zoom again at 4pm.

Post-Grad Interest Groups

UAL’s Post-Grad Community supports a growing number of issue-specific, cross-disciplinary interest groups led by postgraduate students and academics.

​These groups connect creatives with shared research/practice interests across different specialisms and subject areas.

PhD students have launched interest groups in the past to coincide with exhibitions and symposiums that they have organised under the same theme. Students have also used Interest Groups as a working group towards research or a standalone event or series.
