The course aims to help you develop a new range of skills and expand your artistic skillset and culminates in a personal project on the final day where you can translate your newfound abilities and ideas into a finished artwork using the techniques and media you have learned about. There will be time for one-to-one guidance and input from the tutor on days 3 to 5, to further help and encourage you to develop your own ideas and artistic projects.
