Developing Art Practice
Tutor: Helen Bridges
Skill level: Intermediate to Advanced
Focus on personal art projects you want to develop through supported portfolio discussions. Bring in artwork you have created in either another art class or at home as a starting point. By expressing your ideas through discussion with your tutor, find pathways to enhance your artistic practice as you concentrate on your Creative Work Plan.
Examine your art skills closely and identify which Fine Art techniques you would like to develop. Explore drawing in charcoal, pencil, pen and ink, painting in watercolour, acrylic or oils, printing in screenprint and lino cuts, sculpting and constructing 3D work and experiment in mixing media together.
Learn to evaluate your art practice and projects through group discussion and tutor guidance. You will be signposted to artists and designers whose work links to your practice, and through research gain perspective about how your personal art projects fits within the context of contemporary art.
