Art in Everyday Life (Part 2)

Ref: C3126639

Students will be using the work of Andy Warhol as a starting point and how to interpret his style and concept when creating their own artwork. As a group, each week we will be looking at images by the artist and other artists as inspiration for the sessions. Students will then be asked to look at what is in their own environments, ranging from quirky collections of ornaments to our favourite foods and TV programmes. They will be encouraged to find approaches to transform these images into individual pieces of art. Students will then use the session to create artwork in a relaxed environment, sometimes we may even use music and quizzes in the session to inspire us. A range of materials will be provided and students will be encouraged to experiment and learn more about these materials in order to create high quality artwork.
