Descripción

Design and carry out your own visual projects, exploring the relationships between word and image, as you prepare for a career as a visual artist in a growing creative industry.

Whatever your artistic background, our Master's course will develop your visual practice in areas that are important for illustrators and book artists, such as visual sequencing and visual text. It will challenge you to cross the divide between fine art and applied art found on many undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, making it a unique course for the UK.

Studying in our purpose-built studios at Cambridge School of Art, much of your work will be practice-based. You’ll propose and undertake self-directed projects, attending group critiques and tutorials that will help you develop your creative skills.

You'll also attend a series of integrated lectures and seminars. These serve two purposes. You’ll explore aspects of illustration and book art, such as the relationships between word and image, narratology and visual language. And you'll receive guidance on research methods and critical writing - which you'll put to immediate use on the course, as well as in your future career.

¿Qué objetivos tiene esta formación?

Our course will prepare you for a career as a freelance illustrator or freelance book artist. In recent years these roles have been increasingly in demand thanks to the growth of interest in artists' books, graphic novels, self-publishing, e-books and an awareness of small, batch publishing. You’ll also gain skills that will be useful in many other fields, such as bookbinding or teaching. You might even find a way to combine it with your current career, as did Dr Katy Shorttle, whose artwork on health issues was recently featured by The Guardian. Or you might decide to move on to a research degree, like our PhD Fine Art.

Lectures and seminars will introduce you to methodology, ethics and exemplars of research methods from a broad range of art and design disciplines.
  • Visual TextThrough self-directed visual projects you will explore the relationships between text and image, words, authorship and the artist's voice. In lectures and seminars you will look at the role of text and typographic identity in the generation of meaning, and text and image relationships.
  • Sequence and SeriesOn this studio-based module, you will develop your personal visual language visual work through a consideration of series and sequential imagery. In lectures and seminars you will explore contemporary theory and practice in relation to visual language, narratology, composition, structure and editing of sequential and serial visual work.
