The Centre for Drawing: Wimbledon

The Centre for Drawing seeks to promote and re-examine the activity of drawing.

The Centre for Drawing was set up at Wimbledon School of Art in 2000. As the first specialist drawing centre in the UK it reflected the shift in the status of drawing as a form worthy of its own research and presentation, and acknowledged the wider cultural shift towards drawing as an expanding field in its own right.

This is a digital archive of selected historical activities of The Centre for Drawing, and a collation of current drawing and research at Wimbledon. The physical material of The Centre for Drawing Archive is currently being catalogued and listed in order to make it more accessible to researchers. This material will eventually be held in the library at Wimbledon College of Arts.

For more information about the timeline and people connected to the Centre for Drawing see:

The material in this archive has been selected by Tania Kovats, artist and current Course Leader of the MA Drawing, Wimbledon.
