Each week you will use different media, technique and approach, so as to broaden your range and skill in drawing and making. Each workshop will make reference to artists and you will be guided with one-to-one and group support, as well as tutor visual exemplars and demonstrations.
1st half term: Students will engage with 6 sperate workshops, each with a different subject matter and approach to drawing. Techniques such as continuous line, monoprint, collage and more will be explored and media will include pencils, inks, pens, paint and textured papers. Students will learn the versatility of drawing and the wonders of art materials and their applications. In engaging with these workshops, GCSE Art students will gain invaluable skills that will complement and enhance their coursework.
2nd half term: Creative sketchbooks: Students will be shown innovative approaches to making their sketchbooks visually exciting and creative. They will be taught effective and purposeful methods for incorporating text, image, artist references and own drawings/ experiments. These workshops will encourage students to maximise creative opportunities for sketchbook work. For those studying GCSE Art, reference will be made to assessment criteria, however, the emphasis will be on the meaningful use of sketchbooks to aid creative development.
Each week, a different subject matter will be explored in relation to a selection of contemporary, historical and cultural artworks. There will be opportunities to reflect and discuss work produced.
Dates: Saturdays, 18thSept - 4th Dec 2021
NB There will be no session on Saturday 30th October.
Duration: 11 sessions
