An introductory course developed to help you release your personal style through using different mediums and methods of creating traditional art.
Your tutor Julie James, who has practical experience in landscape, architecture, interior design and fine art, will give you an insight into designing, planning and creating experimental art. This will allow you the freedom to fully experiment with researching and gathering concepts, brainstorming and designing followed by creating your ideas using collage, drawing, painting, pen and ink, 2D and 3D work and mixed media, while having a flexible structure already in place to work from.
During the 10-week course, you'll enter the world of Art and Design where you'll explore how to be structurally creative, embrace diversity, gather ideas to expand upon and make the work your own, record every idea then use your developed inspirations to create experimental artwork. By using your own findings and thoughts you will naturally be developing your own working style and methodology.
Each lesson will be a different subject and medium, you will be advised what to bring the previous week. This will be delivered by a brief introduction of an art movement allowing a slight structure to the experimentation of medium. Commencing each session, a reflection of the previous weeks’ work, and an opportunity for students to receive group and individual critique.
