Royal College of Art: Painting

The Painting MA programme approaches the practice of painting as a self-reflexive, critical activity that draws on a wealth of varied historical, material and conceptual accomplishments related to the medium and its objects. We aim to provide a platform on which to engage with current issues and debates surrounding the challenges and location of painting as a part of contemporary art practice.
The curriculum is designed to develop your professional practice, research and studio work, and how you present that work and your practice professionally. We want you to reflect upon and play out what kind of artist you want to be, with the ultimate aim of enabling a sustainable and meaningful practice as a professional practitioner. The Painting programme is a world leader in research and practice, and we provide excellent teaching by leading practitioners, writers and curators.

Candidates are selected entirely on merit and applications are welcomed from all over the world. The selection process will consider creativity, imagination and innovation as demonstrated in your portfolio, as well as your potential to benefit from the programme and to achieve high MA standards overall.
The application procedure focuses on searching out those candidates that are highly motivated, independent and demonstrate they have the critical skills necessary to develop and further their existing ideas. In short, those artists that – given the opportunity to join the Painting programme – would utilise their time with us to the full, and have the generosity to support their fellow students.
We welcome candidates from all kinds of backgrounds, but generally having completed a BA degree. In recent years, people have come from fine art, printmaking, painting, sculpture, photo media, conservation, illustration, design, textiles, architecture, art history and interactive arts courses.
While many students enter the course after years of independent work, we also accept students directly from undergraduate courses.
Ultimately, we want to attract to the course those artists that want to work in a supportive environment and have the drive and ambition to realise the full potential of their studio practice, in turn energising their peer group.
