UCA: Creative Crafting Short Course
- University for the Creative Arts
- This event is open to
- Year groups:
This workshop series is open to young people aged 13 – 14 who have a passion for sculpture, printmaking and a desire to improve their skills and learn new imaginative and creative ways of telling stories through sculpture-making and print-making with clay.
Students might be considering careers in a broad range of subjects for which sculpting, printmaking, and colour-theory provide an important foundation. Throughout the workshop students will build their own worlds of clay sculptures and prints and learn how to hand-build, print-make using clay and clay-making tools, and how to curate an online exhibition. They will also learn about colour-theory and colour semiotics. At the end of the four-week workshops they will put together an online exhibition of their art works created during the course of the workshops.
This workshop will be led by Louisa Stylianides, a practising sculptor and poet, who will lead students through a range of sculpting and printmaking exercises. Four workshops of two hours duration each will be held online on Saturdays.
Studying from a wide range of online resources and researching other artists’ work, students will make detailed clay sculptures that will be then used to create prints on paper and create collective stories about their sculptures and drawings, as they prepare a body of work for the final online curated exhibition.
