Art and Design for 11 to 13 Year Olds Short Course

Course description

Join Art and Design for 11 to 13 Year Olds and work with a practicing artist to explore the process of making artwork and developing ideas with similar working methods to those we use at art college.

Each day we will build on experiments that relate to the previous session to create new work in different media, such as drawing, painting, sculpture, print making and collage. Students will work at different scales in different formats, take creative risks and experiment. The course encourages students who like to think through making and doing and are eager to learn how to solve problems practically and creatively.

We will draw inspiration by looking at modern and contemporary artists work, with a focus on learning about artistic practice and developing ideas.
