Experimental Art and Media
This course has two aims. The first is to give you the knowledge and confidence to work with a range of different core materials – not only in drawing and painting, but also in experimental techniques including collage, mixed media, photography, printmaking and film. The second is to help you explore your own ideas and to help you develop a personal visual language. A key part of this will be to give you the skills to develop ideas, research them, plan a body of work and bring it to a successful conclusion. This is an exciting and challenging class where you will be working in a lively and supportive environment.
All levels Tuesdays | 6.45 to 9.45pm
Intermediate to advance Thursdays | 10am to 1pm
Lithography was invented 200 years ago by Senefelder as a means of printing his own manuscripts. He worked out that he could draw on Bavarian limestone and then, after careful processing of the stone, he could print the drawing.
Fridays | 10am to 2pm
Photoshop for Artists, Designers, Printmakers and Illustrators
Photoshop is an incredibly useful tool for managing image creation and preparation. We will work with both drawings and photographs. For illustrators, it is a fantastic chance to see how your original images can easily be enhanced by changing and manipulating effects and colours.
Thursdays | 10am to 2.30pm
Etching is an artistic discipline by which images can be created on metal using a variety of different processes, including the use of acid, then printed onto specialised printmaking papers. Multiple prints can be made from a plate to form a limited edition of work, each one of which is an ‘original’.
