To encourage you to negotiate a personal project, you will be set a project brief. The theme will be open enough for you to select your own line of enquiry, but give structure to help you to undertake a meaningful project.
The first session of the course will kick off with observational drawing and you will be asked to continue to source imagery relevant to your ideas in between sessions.
Throughout the course you will develop ideas and explore your concepts through your preferred media. You will be encouraged to explore a range of approaches to making a creative response to develop a broad and varied portfolio of artwork.
You will benefit from the opportunity of informal group discussion and feedback and support from 1-1 tutorials in order to broaden your ideas and approach to your work.
"It has been such a joy to get involved with Artpocket. I’ve been taking part in their Art Direction course over the past few months and it has revived and renewed my creative practice. I’ve got a background in the arts and in teaching but I hadn’t really made or done anything for myself for a while and was feeling low in confidence, frustrated and very rusty! Becky and Hannelore create a safe, supportive space in which to experiment, develop new skills or refresh old ones and are great at both encouraging and stretching you. As a result I am enjoying making again and have even felt brave enough to enter Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios this May! "
