Young Artists: Summer Holiday Course Aged 11 - 15 Week 3

Pictures and Words

Using poetry as a starting point, this week will look at the power of drawing to bring an imagined world to life.  The poet creates images in the mind, the artist coaxes them into the world.  Using both tonal and coloured materials students will look at the interplay between words, image and text.  The course will include a visit to the British Library and a look at the art of typography – text as sculpture and as drawing - before students work on their own contemporary illustrated manuscript.

Courses run from 10am – 4pm, Monday to Friday.
Students will be supervised at all times and there will be a maximum class size of 20.

This course will run from the studios at Royal Drawing School Shoreditch.
