The BA Fine Art Drawing (Hons) at the University of the Arts London (UAL) will encourage you to develop your understanding of drawing as not necessarily limited to marks on paper. It will look at how drawing is interpreted virtually, spatially and across disciplines. 


What to expect

  • To use drawing as an end in itself, but also for exploring other modes of art practice like film, installation, performance and sculpture 
  • To be introduced to key terms that have defined drawing and understand the frameworks in which they might hold multiple meanings 
  • To look at how drawing is used in disciplines outside art. For example, medicine, architecture and dance choreography 
  • To study the practice of fine art, its history, culture and contemporary position  
  • To make work and develop an ethical practice 
  • To express and explore your artistic, social and personal interests informed by focussed research  
  • To discuss your work through tutorials, seminars, group and cross-course crits  
  • Methods and materials workshops and demonstrations by artists and technicians. Some of these will be with our partners across London  
  • Opportunities to gain knowledge and experience of collaborative working and socially engaged art practice  
  • A lecture programme that gives you a deeper understanding of contemporary fine art practice. It will widen your critical, theoretical, historical knowledge. This is for all Camberwell undergraduate students studying Drawing, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Computational Arts  
  • To choose between a final year dissertation, performance, practical work placement or live project  
  • To take part in external projects with students from across Camberwell's BA Fine Art programme 
  • Course specific lectures, seminars and field trips  
  • To have access to printmaking, photography, film, moving image, digital, plastic, ceramics, wood and metalwork. This enables our students to think of art practices in its’ most expanded form and its relationship to other art forms.

Work experience and opportunities

All our students from The BA Fine Art Drawing (Hons) at the University of the Arts London (UAL) will have the opportunity to take part in UAL's Erasmus and international exchange programme. Recent BA Fine Art students have spent part of their study with partner institutions in Leipzig, Madrid, Marseille, Milan, New York and Tokyo.

In the third year all students, can if they wish, undertake a work placement, instead of a written dissertation or practical live project. Students have worked alongside well-established artists, such as Richard Wentworth or David Batchelor. Others have worked within educational or curatorial institutions, such as Tate, Chisenhale Gallery, or within a specialist area such as a foundry or paint manufacturer.
