The Centre For Drawing : A network
A network designed to encourage; creative thinking and cross-disciplinary discovery that is focused on the scholarly and imaginative exploration of the boundaries of drawing.
The Centre for Drawing is based at CCW, led by Professor Stephen Farthing, the Rootstein Hopkins Research Professor of Drawing, University of the Arts, London and a curatorial group of research active artists with a special interest in drawing from across the graduate school and University.
The centre was originally founded in 2000 at Wimbledon College of Art , it then became a UAL research centre in 2008. By 2011 the centre had developed: a secondary school curriculum and award in drawing , launched of a cross-disciplinary MA in drawing and built a focused network of members who regularly met to develop projects . By Spring 2011 the core membership realized it had achieved many of its founding goals and decided that the development of a specialist international knowledge sharing forum should become its priority.
With this single objective in mind in September 2011 we launched this Blog to service communication between network members and as a means of promoting and supporting the four clearly focused events we plan to organize each year.
