The Foundation Online Summer School gives students the opportunity to experience the disciplines taught on Foundation at Kingston School of Art. Each day will focus on a different subject area (Fine Art, Fashion & Fabrication, Visual Communication, 3D Design and Moving Image) and is led by an experienced Foundation tutor who specialises in that field. The Summer School can be a helpful bridge between school and university-level teaching.
The course will focus on the importance of visual research, drawing, idea generation and conceptual thinking, and introduces the Foundation approach and ethos. Students will be encouraged to participate in constructive group discussions and informal reviews of work. As well as generating and developing new outcomes, this is an exciting opportunity to build confidence in selecting, showing, and presenting work.
Students will be sent a basic list of materials in advance of the course start date. Due to the online nature of the course, students will need access to a computer, with webcam and microphone suitable for use with video conferencing software.
The course is taught by current Foundation tutors, who are professional creatives currently working within their specialism.
