A week exploring sea stories and tidal tales.
Young artists on this course will develop their observational drawing skills whilst also considering more expressive means of exploring form and surface. The week will include an inspiring trip to the beach, where students will learn about drawing on location using sketchbooks, collecting found materials and panoramic sketching. The tutor will introduce the class to art works by leading artists based on themes of the sea, including Fiona Hutchison, Will MacLean and Robert Callender. The young artists will spend the week developing their initial drawings in to more imaginative pieces using collage, printmaking, painting, mixed media and sculpture. Encouragement will be offered to try new things and work in unexpected ways throughout the course of the week. Students will leave with a diverse range of work, having built on their creative skills as an artist.
