The course will allow students to develop a sustained and focused body of work through discussions with the tutor and carrying out work in their own time beyond the classes. Students will be encouraged to creating drawings that engage in a dialogue with their work, questioning what drawing can be, challenging their own thoughts and approaches and pushing the boundaries of expression.
