Program description

Painting BA (Full-time)

This degree provides an ideal opportunity to nurture your love of painting. You’ll study both abstract and figurative painting traditions during practical workshops with demonstrations by painters, technicians and conservators.

London Met was ranked seventh in the UK for fine art and photography by The Guardian's university league tables 2020.

With access to both life drawing classes and workshops, you’ll produce work in a range of mediums and develop a strong understanding of how painting crosses other media. Taught by painters who have exhibited internationally, you’ll also visit artist studios in London, painting shows across England and learn to understand exactly how drawing is fundamental to any painting practice.

You’ll explore oils, acrylics, watercolours and spray paint, and investigate how different paints are made. You’ll examine how contemporary painters use long-standing traditions in mark-making, processes and techniques, and consider colour theory as used in painting now and in the past.
