The pathway will give you the opportunity to develop a project from proposal to final exhibition. You will be asked to research the content, materials and technical skills appropriate to your project, and produce written as well as practical work exploring your chosen subject area and relationship to contemporary practice. We expect you to be well grounded in relevant aspects of Printmaking and be able to define and debate your study proposals. Individual programmes are negotiated and supervised throughout the course in tutorials with specialist academic staff.
During the final development and completion of your personal programme attention is given to personal focus, artistic direction and application. The final work is presented in the form of a public exhibition at the College.
Camberwell is widely regarded as the place to study Printmaking, boasting an international reputation for the quality of work and teaching. The success of the pathway is due to its exploration of Printmaking as a medium in its own right and its relationship to wider contemporary practices. It responds to current debates about the role of skill and authorship in the creation of artworks, and about the notion of the unique work of Art.
Printmaking technologies are being utilised by artists in more varied and experimental approaches than ever before which is why Camberwell is investing in both traditional and digital methods to enable development of ideas through print media. You will have the opportunity to investigate the subject in a contemporary critical context as well as a wider historical perspective.
Career opportunities: Printmaking students will have a wide range of creative career destinations open to them, from practicing artist or freelance designer, to working in education or research. Graduates go on to teach in higher education at graduate and postgraduate level, establish successful print workshops such as Artichoke Print Workshop and East London Printmakers, work in editioning prints and exhibit both in the UK and abroad. We will also encourage groups of artists from within the MA programme to exhibit and curate together after graduation.
