Description

How would you define the relationship between drawing and sculpture? How can these two artistic practices interplay, coexist and overlap? This course enables you to explore this relationship for yourself through experimental drawing, object-making and sculptural techniques. With guidance from your tutor you will be encouraged to express and develop your own ideas and concepts through materials and practical processes.

Topics covered

  • Initially, we will use of short tasks and projects in the creation a wide variety of works both individually and collaboratively.
  • You will  use of a wide range of materials including charcoal, paint, inks, clay, plaster, card, wood, found materials and objects.
  • We will investigate a number of processes such as printing, construction, casting and modelling.
  • We consider the individual qualities of materials such as their form, texture, colour, weight, and narrative connotations.
  • You will apply playful creative processes to produce visually stimulating, and engaging bodies of work.

The course culminates in the completion of personal projects whereby students investigate a chosen subject, be it a material, an artist, an object or concept. Students then come together to co-produce an exhibition of works in their chosen media - drawings, objects, sculptures or all of the above.

Who should take this course?

  • Anyone with an interest in fine art, drawing and sculpture will benefit from the course.
  • We have had a good number of students looking to develop their fine art portfolio to in order to go apply for study at foundation or degree level.
  • Those making work at home or in the studio and who want some new ideas should also enjoy this course.

Course level: The course is suitable for all levels, from beginners to students with more experience.

Student Testimonials:

"This course is stimulating, serious and fun, owing as much to the effort you are prepared to put into it as to the excellence of the course tutor. Jonathan was quietly inspirational and encouraging, inviting us to explore and see things differently, together and separately. Looking for something that could unlock some creativity (with ideas but unsure as to whether I had it in me to express these), this turned out to be the perfect course for me - it gave me more than I had hoped for". Stephan Termote

"I thoroughly enjoyed the 2d to 3d course. Each day was well structured allowing exploration of different techniques and materials. Our tutor Jonathan used his skills and knowledge to gently nudge us in new art directions in order to achieve work to extend our experience. It was hard work and definitely worth it." - MVA Smith

"I recommend 2D to 3D Drawing course. I found the experience of using found materials and transforming a 2D drawing into a 3D object very stimulating. Indeed, the objects I have made and the course outline have influenced my current practice. I met a lot of interesting people, the atmosphere was very creative, and most of all the tutor engaged thoroughly with each individual." - Lanu Varvaro
