About

Based around the development of your individual practice, the core ethos of the MA Painting programme offered by the Coventry University is to enable you to harness your personal development and creative ambitions. We want to help you discover what kind of artist you want to be, so that you can flourish within the scope of contemporary painting and the broader cultural realm.

Overview

During the MA Painting programme offered by the Coventry University , you will take two dedicated painting modules in which you will develop your personal painting practice. We aim to extend your knowledge of paint as a material and process, introducing a range of disparate approaches to painting – from realism to abstraction, material to conceptual.

Guided and supported by accomplished practitioners, you will be given opportunities to test and explore a range of ideas and issues relating to the traditions of painting. We encourage you to work in a range of media, including paint media, print, photography and digital technologies, as appropriate and depending on your own interests.

Career prospects

Successful graduates may find careers as self-employed artists exhibiting in a wide range of galleries and artist-led spaces, or the growing field of gallery and exhibition curating.

The barriers between art and design practices are increasingly porous, so you may find careers in a range of areas as portfolio workers. You may also use this qualification to help enhance your prospects of entering a career in teaching.

During your time on the MA you will be guided and required to build a professional profile in preparation for entry into professional life. You will have the opportunity to develop a wide range of transferrable skills associated with the use of information gathering, communication technology, professional practice, time management, project management and self-promotion.
