If you are considering a creative career this course will help inform your next steps.

You’ll experience a broad range of art, design and media activities, enabling you to develop an insight into where your creative skills lie and what you enjoy.

3 week overview

The structure of this course will develop your visual language in both 2D and 3D and your ability to turn what you see and think into images, objects or other visual statements.

The nature of the course will vary slightly for each individual dependent on the way in which you explore your own individual creativity and therefore is structured appropriately across all three weeks to suit the developing portfolio of work.

Through drawing you will explore the figure, artifacts and locations and learn how drawing can be used to tell stories and explain ideas. You’ll be guided in keeping a sketchbook during the course, recording what you see, where you go and what you think.

There will be workshops in simple printmaking and photomedia techniques to develop your practical and creative skills. At the end of the course you will have your own unique and varied portfolio of your work to take away with you.
