Drawing is essential for capturing, exploring and experimenting with the creative process. If you want a pure education in drawing that can be applied in a range of real-world contexts, this course is what you‘re looking for. One of the only dedicated drawing courses in the UK, BA(Hons) Drawing has been developed in response to demand – and with our heritage, expert staff and unique approach behind us, Falmouth is the perfect place to deliver it. Based in Falmouth's historic art studios, the course looks at drawing in its broadest sense, providing you with the opportunity to investigate different approaches, both practically and theoretically. From observational recording, copying and transcription, to digital developments and applications, modern hieroglyphics, interactive map works, anatomical and life drawing, three-dimensional portraits, projections and elevations, you'll build a breadth of drawing skills and techniques through a wide range of projects. With an inspirational landscape right on your doorstep, you'll have the opportunity to get outside and draw, through field trips to visual arts hotspots including St Ives and the Isles of Scilly. Alongside this you'll develop a thorough understanding of drawing through different cultural and historical viewpoints so that, by combining your skills and knowledge, you'll start to establish your own drawing language.
