Summary

MA Visual Arts: Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts demands strong voices and entrepreneurial image-makers who can tell their own stories. It focuses on originality and authorship, aiming to encourage visual thinking, research skills and storytelling ability, while developing your entrepreneurial qualities, communication and professional skills.

The course builds on the skills our students already have, through personally ambitious projects and wider interaction with the artistic community.

**What can you expect?**
• To test out and implement critical and practical skills, as well as consider how to develop their practice and any new directions they may take.
• A series of workshops, discussion groups, and one-to-one tutorials that help students develop a proposal for an ambitious and engaging project.
• Studio based lecture programme, practitioner visits and seminars.
• A shared lecture programme across the Visual Arts courses that draw upon the richness of research across Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges.
• Visits to museums and to engagement with London's creative environment.
• Students are also encouraged to take part in exhibitions, competitions and commissions that have previously involved collaborations with Wellcome Trust, Blackhall Studios as well as Purestone digital marketing agency.
• To have access to Camberwell's shared workshops.

**Structure**
Extended Full-Time Study Mode: The MA is taught over two years in six blocks of 10 weeks. Extended Full-Time mode is a hybrid of part time and full time study.

By teaching in this mode we aim to give our students the opportunity to benefit from undertaking a full time Masters degree while also pursuing and sustaining other commitments such as part-time employment, gaining other experience in the creative industries or maintaining care responsibilities.

Unit One - Research, Development and Practice:
Students explore, experiment and research to further develop their Project Proposal. The unit introduces you to subject specific issues and topics, research methodologies and techniques. It aims to orientate you and your practice within the course, and to develop your contextual, critical and research skills at the onset of your MA learning.

Unit Two - Reflection and Presentation:
Resolution and presentation of students' work according to their Project Proposal. A symposium will provide the opportunity to present their research and provide further peer feedback. Students' practice at this stage should synthesise their practical, conceptual and professional abilities and they will be expected to consider their future practice, audience and context of their work in contemporary practice.

The intention and context of students' work will inform the decisions they will take regarding a final exhibition. Students' will also be expected to work collaboratively with their peers to actively plan, organise and install an exhibition as part of their continued Personal and Professional Development.

**About Camberwell College of Arts**
Camberwell College of Arts is internationally regarded for the outstanding quality of its courses, staff and facilities.
