Art Summer School

A week of inventive creativity for 12-16 year olds.

Experience creativity through art and design. Come and work in our specialist studios alongside our expert tutors. Get creative using a variety of materials, building your art and design skills by using different processes each day.

Jewellery Monday & Tuesday

Using forming and doming techniques you will be making unusual bead-like jewellery components. You will be encouraged to use texture and shape by using the rolling mill and other metalwork tools and skills. The finished forms could be used to create a variety of jewellery

Photography Monday & Friday

Explore photographic techniques and skills using both digital and analog processes to create some stunning images. Use cameras, computers, paper and chemicals and produce a range of images to take home.

Pottery/Ceramics Tuesday & Friday

We will start by exploring different textures and surfaces around the college. These textures will be transferred to clay slabs. You will be taught the technique of slab building to build your chosen style of pot. Be it a mug, a jug, a desk tidy or vase. You will then decorate your pot with coloured clays. Through this hands-ceramics workshop, you'll find out how far your creativity and ideas can take you.

Digital Drawing Wednesday

This introduction to digital drawing provides learners the opportunity to experiment with both traditional and digital drawing techniques. Using a graphics tablet you will learn how to combine these different ways of working to produce a range of character concept designs for a video game.

3D Thursday

Exploring a range of surface manipulation techniques you will design and create your own personalised phone or iPod case. Creative techniques such as applique, melted plastics, paper cutting and hand stitching will be experimented with and form the surface of your final piece. You will be the designer of this project and will be supported in using your creativity to produce a phone/iPod case to take home with you.
