Drawing Courses - The Open College of the Arts | Distance Learning Degrees and Courses


Degree and foundation-level drawing distance learning with OCA

Drawing has long been valued for its readiness to impart knowledge, express an idea, represent something observed, or conjure something directly from invention. This broader context, from figure drawing to map making, is at the heart of one of the few specialist drawing degrees in the country.

You’ll be taken on a personal journey, developing a distinctive voice through drawing as a language.

Take a look at the drawing courses we offer and begin your journey with OCA.
