With Artist Claire Western

These courses are designed for students of 14 – 18 who are interested in Art, possibly studying it for GCSE or A level and who would like to expand their knowledge and experience.

We will be making monoprints, collagraphs, etchings and printing over a range of prepared surfaces. Students will also be introduced to working with mixed media and exploring all the expressive possibilities of unusual combinations of surface and colour.

Subjects will be provided, but individual choices may be prompted by GCSE or A level themes and focus. This is a great opportunity to add to the range of work in a portfolio for exams and Foundation portfolios. All materials, papers, painting supports and the use of a press will be provided.

Each session will produce completed work so you can do one or all of the courses.
