Ralph Steadman is a one of our foremost living artists.  The Kent-based illustrator and cartoonist stars in ‘For No Good Reason’, a full-length documentary film made with Johnny Depp about his life and work which goes on general release this Spring.  The film premiered in September 2013 at the Toronto International Film Festival to great acclaim. Depp pays a call on his friend and hero and takes off on a journey discovering the life and works of ‘one of the most distinctive artists of the last 50 years.’  A major retrospective of Steadman’s work was shown at the Cartoon Museum in London last year.  He is delighted to be the patron of the scholarship and act as Head Judge.

The Visual Arts department at RIC is a creative and enriching environment which encourages its students to thrive, giving them the confidence to explore and develop their own personal style with support from experienced tutors offering expertise in a wide range of disciplines.  A high number of students go on to study Art & Design related subjects at University or Art College.
