Art Now: Here and There, Me and Us is a three-day course that focuses on exploring a range of contemporary fine art practices including performance, photography, text, drawing and critical research. We will engage in exciting discussions about the role of the artist in the 21st Century, and explore the ways in which we can share art outside of a conventional gallery context, such as publications. In a world fraught with increasing social and environmental challenges, this workshop will celebrate you as artists with distinct and unique voices, while also embracing a collaborative approach to art-making as a powerful tool for change. This course is a great introduction to fine art practice at Foundation level.
Art Now explores the experimental side of contemporary fine art practice, introducing innovative artists and concepts while enabling you to push your creative practice. It's going to be messy, loud, intriguing, collaborative, self-led, absurd, serious, intuitive, and most of all, fun!
The course is taught by current Foundation tutors, who are professional creatives currently working within their specialism.
A basic list will be sent to you a week in advance of the course start date. All other materials are provided by Kingston School of Art (KSA).
