Course description

This online course will help young art students aged 11 to 13 years old strengthen their portfolios, gain confidence in their abilities and engage with experimentation and generation of ideas. You will be free to approach your projects in the way you choose and focus on your areas of interest, such as painting, drawing, photography or illustration. We will look at modern and contemporary artists’ work, with a focus on learning about artistic practice and developing ideas. You will create a range of work in and explore a variety of media.
