Earth, Air, Fire and Water are fundamental to our survival. They are also metaphorical elements found in many religions and spiritual practices. This reflective, mixed media Summer School will seek to consider our connections and interconnectedness with these precious resources.
Exploring the theme of Elemental Connections, each day will begin with a lecture introducing one element - Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Throughout the week, we will work both in the studio and outside in the landscape, employing a variety of traditional and experimental art practices. On the fifth day, students will be invited to create an artist book which summarises and reflects on the themes we have explored during the week.
