Over the course of this two-week programme, you will learn:
In this foundational module, students will embark on a creative journey into the world of art and design. They’ll explore the basics of artistic principles, visual language, and design concepts. Through hands-on projects and interactive discussions, students will develop a solid foundation in drawing, color theory, and the elements of design. They’ll also gain an understanding of the historical and cultural contexts that have influenced art and design throughout the ages.
Module 2 focuses on the exploration of various artistic mediums and techniques. Students will experiment with a wide range of artistic tools, including painting, sculpture, digital media, and more. They’ll learn how to express their creativity and ideas through different mediums and develop their unique artistic style. Through guided projects and studio time, students will hone their technical skills and artistic expression.
In this practical module, students will have the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents and develop a portfolio of their work. They’ll work on self-directed projects, exploring themes and concepts that inspire them. Students will also learn about the presentation of artwork, the curation of exhibitions, and the role of art and design in contemporary culture. By the end of this module, students will have a portfolio that reflects their artistic growth and creative vision.
Develop your public speaking skills. Share your passion. Inspire your classmates.
Today, giving great presentations are a vital skill for achieving academic and professional success. Our programmes reflect this by having the ‘art of presenting’ at the heart of their content, and allow you to discover new confidence when using English in public situations.
It’s more than just a chance to enhance your public speaking skills, though; it’s an opportunity for you to share your passion and subject knowledge with your fellow classmates. Through your presentations, you will become sources of inspiration, and encourage others to delve deeper into your subject.
Over the two-week programme, you will participate in two Time To Shine Projects.
Week One: Artistic Masterpiece Recreation
In the first week’s “Time to Shine” project, students will collaborate to recreate an iconic artistic masterpiece. Each student will select a renowned artwork from art history, and as a team, they will work to reproduce it using their chosen medium and techniques. This project not only allows students to hone their technical skills but also encourages them to dive into the world of art history, gaining a deeper understanding of the styles and techniques employed by the masters.
Week Two: Creative Installation Exhibition
In the second week’s “Time to Shine” project, students will transform into exhibition curators and artists. Working collaboratively, they will design and create a unique art installation that reflects a contemporary theme or issue they are passionate about. This installation will serve as the centrepiece of their own mini-art exhibition. Students will not only showcase their artistic talents but also communicate a powerful message through their collective creation, demonstrating the impact of art in addressing societal concerns. This project encourages creativity, teamwork, and the exploration of art as a means of conveying powerful messages.
