Study visit: Jerwood drawing prize


Join OCA tutor Polly Harvey on the 5 November in Bath.

Selected from original drawings, the Jerwood Drawing Prize has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence, and to promoting and celebrating the breadth of contemporary drawing practice. The exhibition provides a platform to showcase the work of UK-based drawing practitioners, from student to established, and as a project helps to define a wider understanding of the role and value of drawing in creative practice.

The prestigious first prize has been awarded to Solveig Settemsdal for her video Singularity, which offers an almost sculptural digital rendering of the transformative and fluid drawing process. Find out more here.

    The Edge building is the new arts centre for the University of Bath on Claverton Down which is on a good bus route from the town centre. The arts centre is very accessible and has a great cafe. There are many other museums and galleries in Bath which students might want to visit.

    A couple of us who’ve seen the Jerwood Drawing at different places as it’s been moving around the country are thinking of having a hangout to talk about what we’ve seen. We’re both D2 students, but I know I saw it in Bath alongside students from several different courses and it would be good to include anyone who’d be interested in more follow-up. Any interested takers? Reply on the forum thread:
