University of the Arts London

Course Introduction

Students develop a project from proposal to final exhibition; they develop an innovative studio practice through exploring new and existing materials and processes. Seminars and discussions cover a wide range of subjects, including material culture studies, anthropology, philosophy, sustainability, consumerism, museum studies, psychology and literature. There are visits to collections, makers’ studios, galleries and museums. Students critically engage with contemporary debates in applied arts, design and object'based art through the development of a personal project, as well as collectively exploring human'object relationships and the meaning of making. A shared lecture programme across the visual arts courses draws upon the richness of research across Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges. Students produce a range of works during the programme and for the final show, which has previously included lighting, design, ceramic works, furniture, jewellery, as well as installations of small'scale sculptures.
