SCHEDULE

FOUNDATION WORKSHOP
Monday 10 – Friday 14 April, Room 201
9am – 5pm

Working with the theme, ‘Being Young Today’ students will be guided through a series of exercises designed to: spark imagination, encourage wide-ranging and thorough investigation, inspire ambition and teach presentation skills. The aim of the workshop is to support students through:  peer-reviews, presentations of artists and designers work relevant to the theme, and one-to-one tutorials in the development of a personal work that will be professionally exhibited.

Students will be expected to draw and build upon the technical skills, methods and approaches that they have learned on Foundation and/or other courses in order to realize an accomplished and ambitious work to be shown to the public.

A catalogue will be designed and produced by the group for the exhibition.
