Challenge yourself and enhance your techniques in painting and drawing
Painting and drawing encompasses a variety of skills and techniques enabling you to explore traditional, observational and experimental work to develop professional approaches to a range of making processes.
Our BA (Hons) Painting and Drawing degree is built around the key areas of drawing and painting and will encourage you to experiment with other 2D media such as printmaking. You will specialise from the outset of your degree through the development of skills in one clear discipline area.
To achieve the highest quality art production, you will be supported by specialist workshops introducing you to oil, acrylic and other paint media where you will be given demonstrations in techniques and processes. We will encourage you to develop an intellectual curiosity and a sense of adventure, with an ability to deal with the unpredictable.
Main studio, workshop skills and activities include:
- Painting: oil, acrylic, construction, mixed media, collage.
- Printmaking: etching, screen-printing, relief printing, mono-print and combined media, block print and photo based processes
- Drawing: drawing is seen as an important element in the development and realization of ideas and is the basis of the initial studio work.
- Digital: using technology such as iPads to create art

“So far my time here at the University of Chichester has been unforgettable. I have managed to learn a great deal about the subject I love, gaining knowledge and skills that have benefited me greatly in my Painting and Drawing specialist practise. The academic staff know a great deal about their subjects and have been more than willing to assist me in any difficulties/ questions I have had over the few weeks. Having my own studio was also highly beneficial for me as an artist, as not many universities offer this. I cannot wait to see how I develop as an artist in the second year. I grow more and more confident that through the education that the University provides, I am one step closer to fulfilling my goal of becoming a professional artist.”
Teaching and Assessment
Learn in a student-centred environment and thrive as an artist
You will be taught through small lectures and seminars along with peer group critiques in the studio which will support your independent, self-directed work. You will learn to create your own negotiated pattern of work as you move towards an exhibition for your degree show in your final year.
You will experience a wide variety of approaches to learning through core and optional modules that build to form an incremental approach to fine art practice. The development of knowledge and skills is encompassed through the use of a wide range of materials, media and processes in studio and workshop activity to develop your practical skills and subject knowledge. The integration of the cultural, critical and theoretical debate and inquiry provides you with the ability to contextualise your work within academic frameworks.
You will experience a combination of practical assessment (including a public degree show at the end of year three), report writing, essays and presentations, using clear assessment criteria that reflect achievement.
Turn your passion for art into a career
As a Painting and Drawing student, you will undertake external projects and receive careers advice so you are prepared to pursue your desired career or to undertake postgraduate study. This course prides itself in embedding creativity (in all it’s components) and communication skills centrally within the degree programme. The course offers students further key skills that are both useful for artists but, more importantly, are life-skills that will help them in varied employment situations.
This course will provide you with the opportunity to develop skills across a broad range of areas and become resourceful, reflective learners, finding creative solutions to new problems with the ability to be self-disciplined and able to work independently. Creativity, thinking ‘out of the box’ and good communication skills (visual, verbal, and written) are all key skills that employers are seeking, and these are fundamental skills developed by Painting and Drawing.
