Located in studios 5 minutes from Xuan Dieu and Ciputra, Work Room Four will be running two Summer Art School courses for students aged 8 – 16 years old. Courses run from 9:00am to 3:30pm Monday to Friday.
The aim of the school is to escalate the students’ creativity so they experience their own joy from making something new and developing new skills to tangible effect. We want them to feel proud of an achievement and feel part of a collaborative. Learning and fun will occur mostly through making with hands, enjoying texture and gesture and studying techniques and mediums.
It is expected that students be prepared to challenge themselves, take creative risks and follow instruction to achieve quality results. Sharing and reflecting on their successes and failures and understanding how to critique work will be at the core of the course. By the end of the program students will have a diverse portfolio of work and gained the experience of creating art in a vibrant, focused and collaborative artist studio. They will also get the chance to exhibit their work in a public Art Show in our gallery space.
There will be two courses: a one-week program followed by a longer two-week course. All course materials are included.
The one-week course will be an introduction into mediums, processes and techniques where students complete a variety of making activities learning practical skills and their application in Art. These are then developed into a self-directed single piece or body of work. The work will go on display at a public exhibition installed and curated by the two-week program students.
The two-week course includes more mediums and techniques and a greater degree of exploration. It also offers students a chance to develop skills to a higher level and produce more detailed and accomplished finished art works. The two-week program culminates in a public group show that is curated and installed by the students ,giving them insight into how a professional art exhibition is brought to life. The activities will be rigorous and diligently directed and differentiated to offer students an insight into the patience and engagement artists require to make their work.
