The Royal College of Art Contemporary Art Summer School 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 personal and professional fine-art practice in a world-leading environment.
The two-week intensive studio-based course will expand individual art practices and knowledge through one-to-one tutorials, workshops, lectures, film screenings 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 tutors and experts in contemporary art. This course is taught entirely by RCA 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. Students who complete the course will receive a certificate of completion from the Royal College of Art.
