The emphasis of this programme is on the exploration of ideas and media. The goal is to gain skills and courage in the expression of ideas and in the use of materials.

In art-making, everything is a decision and we have incredible freedom to do what we want. We choose the ideas, what the ideas are made with, how they are made, and what their purpose is.

Although the programme introduces formal techniques and methods, they are introduced in a friendly, investigative spirit. This outline is set up as a guideline; the order, content and pace of the programme will adapt to the interests of
the students.

Having fun and being relaxed in the studio is really important. We set up a welcoming and inclusive environment where every voice and idea is listened to with respect and interest.

Each session will look at a formal drawing method such as mark-making, gesture, contour and cross-contour, positive/negative space, linear volume, structural drawing, value drawing and planar structure.
