From sketchbook to sculpture, this four-day course for young artists will explore how to transform drawings into 3D artworks in clay, plaster and textiles.
On the first day, we will make a sketchbook full of colourful drawings. Artist’s sketchbooks will be shown for inspiration and the tutor will help students to bring tone and texture into their images. On the second day, we will start to work outside our sketchbooks creating more developed pieces of mixed-media artwork. The final two days of the course will be spent making imaginative sculptural pieces, exploring different materials and ideas. Students will leave with a sketchbook full of inspiration, larger drawings and paintings, and a range of 3D work which may include vessels, wall-hung artwork, jewellery or sculptures.
