Royal College of Art

Course Introduction

Students are encouraged to use the whole breadth of printmaking techniques and receive full instruction in any appropriate area; all print media from the traditional to new digital technologies are offered; students are introduced to intaglio, lithography and screenprint and there are study trips and opportunities to take part in exhibitions.

Course Modules

Inductions into intaglio, lithography and screenprint; introduction to the still and moving digital image facilities across the College. Each student then begins the process of working to develop a self'initiated body of studio work. This is supported and challenged by lectures, seminars, workshops, exhibitions, group critiques and tutorials. 1st year students take part in a work'in'progress show and at least 1 external exhibition. Students also undertake the mandatory critical and historical studies programme in their 1st year.

Course Additional Entry

Appropriate degree or equivalent required; plus portfolio showing candidate's work as an artist with a particular focus on printmaking; students generally come from specialist printmaking backgrounds but this is not essential.
