During the Easter Holiday we will be running free painting workshops for pupils in Year 9 and 10. The workshops feature practical exercises that require pupils to develop new and unexpected ways of handling paint and tools. This specialised course will allow GCSE Art and Design pupils to take their work to new and exciting heights. Pupils will learn new skills in painting, which they can employ in their coursework and apply to their studies.
All sessions will include an introduction to processes, materials and tools and will feature brief practical demonstrations with related visual resources (the work and procedures of a range of painters). All sessions will close with a brief group appraisal. The sessions are designed to promote practical engagement within a critical and interpretative context.
The course takes place over 4 sessions and each session is two hours long:
Wednesday 3rd April 1.00 - 3.00pm
Thursday 4th April 1.00 - 3.00pm
Tuesday 9th April 1.00 - 3.00pm
Thursday 11th April 1.00 - 3.00pm
