The Drawing Centre 

The aims of the Drawing Centre (DC) are the development of students’ visual learning and communication (look, see, record); using drawing to explore ideas in visually-based programmes and as a host location (physical/virtual) for developing artists to engage with their creativity. The Drawing Centre is open Monday-Friday 9-5 with Studios 1-3 located in the Mill Studio and the new Studio 4 in The Greenhouse

Keeping Safe in Our Spaces

Here at DMU’s library service, we love that you feel our study spaces are a home away from home. However, we are a public space and sadly thefts occasionally happen. To avoid this happening to you, we ask that you do not leave your belongings, especially your valuables (money, credit cards, mobile phones or laptops just to mention a few) unattended. You can find out more about keeping safe in our spaces here.
