We recognise that many Painting and Drawing students at the University of Chichester want to specialise from the outset of their degree, focusing the development of skills in one clear discipline area.


This programme is built around the key areas of drawing and painting and will encourage you to experiment with other 2D media (i.e. printmaking). It is supported by technical workshop provision to enable you to achieve the highest quality art production. This route allows you to commit to this discipline area and explore traditional/observational and experimental work and the building of your own supports.  

The Painting and Drawing programme from the University of Chichester makes use of excellent specialist facilities that support a wide range of practice. There are specialist workshops introducing you to oil, acrylic and other paint media. We give demonstrations in techniques and processes. Painting & drawing encompasses a variety of skills and techniques enabling you to develop professional approaches to a range of making processes.

Work Placements 

  • It is vital that students are prepared for some of the things the contemporary art world will throw at them on graduating.
  • We have developed a programme in which second and third year (level 5 & 6) students focus on aspects of professional practice and vocational experience.
  • Some students may want to be Art Teachers in the future, so in level 5 we’ll find work experience opportunities in schools to enable them to test out if this is what they really want.

Programme Structure

  • You will build on your discoveries in year 1 studio and workshop by continuing with an experimental and materially based approach to making art (2D or 3D) that, with focused development, will drive your ideas and allow you to develop a clear territory for your self-directed studio practice and a greater independence. 
  • You will be encouraged to develop an intellectual curiosity, a sense of adventure, an ability to deal with the unpredictable and an individual approach to problem solving in Fine Art that builds around the skills developed in the workshop modules (painting, printmaking, sculpture and/or textiles as a specialist or working across these areas in a hybrid manner) and/or other approaches developed by you individually (installation, photography, video, sound, performance etc).
