An exciting chance to focus on fundamental skills in studio based art making. Explore new ideas by experimenting with varied approaches and expand your personal artistic language through diverse media – conventional and new. You will be invited to respond intuitively to music and studio set ups and discuss contemporary art practices – simultaneously learning measures of control over materials and approaches to composition. This is a supportive group that focuses on individual development.
