Plymouth College of Art: Drawing

Institution Plymouth College of Art View institution profile
Department Critical and Cultural Studies
Study type Taught


Our MA Drawing programme enables you to examine, interrogate and reflect upon the nature and role of drawing as practice.

Ethos This programme challenges assumptions about drawing by providing a forum in which to critically examine the potential of drawing to communicate, explain and document ideas, but also to be viewed as a performative process or a method to investigate experience.

Providing a critically engaged and supportive environment in which you can develop and challenge your use of drawing, this programme encourages you to experiment, take risks with your own work, and to reflect upon drawing practice by engaging with the rich body of contemporary research in this area.

Outline You will be encouraged to develop a personal methodology for drawing, while exploring a range of strategies, materials and technologies. The programme will stimulate connections, debates and new approaches to drawing across varied disciplines in a dynamic studio setting, with access to workshop areas across the college. Throughout the programme, we will support you to seek opportunities to extend your practice, both nationally and Internationally.

Taught delivery within the programme provides a mix of discipline-specific methods and cross-disciplinary approaches that can be applied across creative and commercial sectors. Our shared module structure allows you to develop a dialogue with creative practitioners across the Graduate School.

Supported practices This programme supports a wide range of figurative, non-figurative and experimental drawing, including drawing as performance, embodied drawing and other approaches to drawing in an expanded field.
