FULL COURSE DESCRIPTION

The De La Warr Pavilion (the building and exhibitions) and its immediate environs will form the focus of the course. Students will focus on the acquisition of conceptual and theoretical skills alongside the development of key practical skills using a range of media.

Students will be able to work directly in response to the building and the landscape around it and they will be encouraged to explore different drawing techniques and experiment with a range of media. This will be an open ended process which students can use to push the boundaries of the personal practice and their understanding of the ways drawing, painting, collage and photography can be used to create personal responses to various architectural and natural forms. The idea of drawing as a means of understanding and responding to the world around is will be a core activity running throughout the course.

Exhibitions in the gallery spaces and a study trip (grade 1) will also be used as a way of exploring current practice and as a springboard for students to make their own work. The emphasis will be on students making links between past and present practices and between art, architecture and culture.

Throughout the course students will keep a journal which will enable them to collect and collate relevant information and research in visual and written form. During the course students will be encouraged to seek personal insights into different subject areas and use these insights for inform their own practice and to make personal investigations through assignments.
