Inner worlds: a week exploring self-portrait and creative still-lives
Young artists on this course will develop their observational drawing skills whilst also considering expressive and explorative ways of making art.
The week will begin looking at traditional self-portraits as well as alternative concepts of what a self-portrait can be. We will use a wide variety of materials and techniques including: collage, drawing, mixed media, printmaking and sculpture. Students will be encouraged to develop their own ideas, whether making a self-portrait or creating a personal still life of objects to work from. Throughout the week, we will think about how our thoughts, ideas and interests can be communicated through art, while trying new things and working in unexpected ways. Students will leave with a diverse range of work, having built on their creative skills.
