Course Description

Join us for three individual week-long art & design workshop led by experienced artists and designers at Kingston University's Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture.  Experience a taste of art outside the classroom, collaborate with others and learn about what the world of art and design has to offer. You will learn processes including printmaking, product design, animation, life drawing and fashion through the lens of experimentation. 

By the end of the workshop you will have gained a variety of skills in different mediums, and most importantly will have grown in confidence and capacity for radical and experimental art practices. Each week will culminate in an exhibition of the work that has been created throughout the sessions, and we encourage parents, family and friends to come down and see what we've been making!
