The Royal College of Art Contemporary Art Summer Course follows the RCA postgraduate teaching model, focused on studio-based learning. The course is designed for visual art students and young emerging artists who wish to develop their own personal and professional fine-art practice in a world-leading environment. Course participants will study intensively for two weeks at the Royal College of Art and live in the world's art capital, London. The two-week intensive studio-based course will expand individual art practices and knowledge through workshops, lectures, film screening, visits to art museums, and access to the extensive RCA library. Furthermore, this course will examine the rich array of positions, methods and materials that artists use, as well as explore questions raised by contemporary art and its production.
Students will have their own studio space in Royal College of Art to develop their work, receive supervision feedback and practical advice from RCA staff and experts in contemporary art. This course is taught entirely by Royal College of Art staff and supported by a broad range of prominent artists, academics, critics and curators. The course provides participants with the opportunity to develop their practice within an interdisciplinary, collaborative atmosphere and meet artists from all over the world. At the end of this course, students will exhibit their work in a group exhibition at the Royal College of Art in London.
