Fine Art BA(Hons) student Melody Park has been awarded the Da Vinci Artist Residency prize, 2016. Supported by the world-renowned Da Vinci brushes, this unique residency provides artists with the necessary facilities to develop their painting practice within the acclaimed Atelier und Galeriehaus Defet in Nuremberg, Germany in September 2016. Kingston University was selected to take part in this new award along with a student from the Royal College of Art, Royal Academy Schools, Glasgow School of Art and City and Guilds of London. Melody will spend 10 days in Nuremberg working and enjoying tours of selected galleries and sights, facilitated by da Vinci, and the residency will culminate in an exhibition of work. This is a great opportunity for Melody, who graduates in 2016.
