Let’s have a more in-depth look at our popular residential summer school for teenagers, Art and Design Workshops for 13 to 16 Year Olds, taught by Rochelle Fry.
This year our residential summer school courses will be held in a new location in Ascot, only 1 hour outside of London, at The Licensed Victuallers’ School. All pastoral care is provided by Ardmore. Course fees are inclusive of all room, board, teaching, most materials and excursions.
Who should take Art and Design Workshops for 13 to 16 Year Olds ?
If you are interested – passionate or just curious – about art and design, this 2-week intensive, residential course is for you!
What can students expect on this course?
You will be in a group of 16 peers from around the world. Everyday is different, we will cover a new material, discipline or way of approaching work. While on the course you will be encouraged to build skills – drawing, painting and sculpting and also develop an understanding of a more experimental process and why that is so important for art and design education.
During the last days of the course, you will propose and work on a personal project. On the final day we install an exhibition together, which will be open to your friends and family to attend.
While on the course, you will meet international students and start to build a network of like-minded people!
What will students finish the course with?
An understanding of the creative process and what is expected of you, in terms of a portfolio, so that you can start your studies in art and design in the UK. You will leave with tons of new work, in many different materials and documentation of the pieces that you cannot take with you. Everything that we do together, can be re-worked and the exercises can be repeated at home, which will continue to form the basis of building your portfolio for further studies even after the course has been completed.
This is a practical studio course – you will be working with your hands, eyes and minds, and learning about different ways to use materials. Most of the course is comprised of individual work, but there are a couple of times which you will work together in collaboration with others on projects.
Throughout the course, the tutors will show images and talk to you about art and design, and encourage you to engage in discussion about the topics you will encounter. We will also engage in critical thinking, communication and learning how to assess and comment on fellow students’ work in group critiques. After a few times, it will become easy!
We have two visits to London museums and galleries, which will form the basis for visual research, developing your sketchbook and continued creative process.
