Description

Working alongside a professional artist you will develop, session by session, through a combination of practical workshops, discussions and projects that will steadily increase your knowledge of contemporary fine art practice. Through off-site visits and demonstrations you will look at the ways in which traditional fine art methods, such as drawing and painting, have evolved to include more interdisciplinary practices including collage, installation and sculpture. The course will be process led, looking at languages of making.

Based in a studio environment, you will cultivate your practice to include contemporary thinking. Through the participation of group discussions and practical projects, your tutor will support and guide you to create self-initiated work. You will examine issues of composition, colour, line, form, space and abstraction as a means to extend different approaches to the making of work. The course will culminate on the last day with a short studio exhibition and a crit, within the college.

Course Outcomes
You will have increased confidence in initiating work of your own from an informed perspective. You will have begun to create a visual language that extends your practice, to assist with applications to further education and exhibiting possibilities.

Who Should Attend
Suitable for those with experience in art and design with an interest in developing their practice. This course will help you to challenge your working methods through the exploration of contemporary fine art practices.

Course Level
Intermediate
