VISUAL ARTS

Specialist Workshops

Soft Pop!

Reflect and comment on popular culture through the medium of textile art. Use (or learn) hand sewing skills to create stuffed fabric sculptures that reflect popular culture.

Photo Sculptures- Digital Drawing, Layering, and Manipulation

How could you apply the ideas of Cubism combined with digital art skills to communicate the “parts of you”? We will explore iPad painting, photo manipulation, layering and editing apps to create a 3-dimensional "photosculpture". The Photosculptures have been inspired by the artist Bruno Del Zou, which are printed, mounted and layered photo reliefs.

Run-a-way Artists

Students will create stencils and impressions inspired by the theme 'Emergence'. Using these they will print fabric, tissue, and paper and use these to design and execute an avant-garde ensemble.

Miniature World

The world’s most popular natural problems emerge through a series of miniature models constructed, photographed, and animated. A surreal character will be created as a superhero with Saving the world storyboard. Students will use their technical skills and imagination to build a model of our natural world in extraordinary details by modelling clay and turn daily-life objects into parts of the construction. The photos of each mini scene will also be taken and exhibited as final products.

South East Asian Past Emerging

Create an atmospheric image based on ancient South East Asian stone carving, while working with mixed media drawing. You will use multiple layers to create an emergent vision of the past. Have a go at creating a spontaneous surface quality, juxtaposed with fine drawing and added collage elements.

Media Collage - ISPP

Mirror Mirror - ISPP

The Face Fits Card - VIS

Engineering to create South East Asian style, masks. Participants will be able to create a multi-layered masks from coloured cards. Participants will employ simple construction methods such as cutting, folding, scoring, creasing and slotting together to make their forms. Decoration and features will be added through the use of slicing, perforation and cutting to create positive and negative shapes between and across the layers. The relief outcomes can work together as a “tribal” group or as individual pieces when displayed. The idea is to create a fusion of decorative motifs, which can reflect the cultural diversity of the region in a single ‘emergent’ style.
