Develop Your Own Project

Dagmara Rudkin

This course is designed to help you to unleash the potential of a project you may be carrying in you but don’t quite know how to translate into a tangible outcome. It is also aimed at those craving creative time but needing an informal structure to identify their areas of interest and an opportunity to enhance their practical art skills. This course is also for anyone interested in building an art portfolio or wanting to develop their own visual language and art practice.

It is suitable for all levels and interests areas including drawing, painting, collage, character and costume design, illustration, mixed media 2D and 3D work.

Throughout the six lighthearted but stimulating sessions you will have an opportunity to:

  • Learn how to respond to fine art and design briefs
  • Use mind maps and mood boards to generate ideas
  • Establish your own themes and areas of interest
  • Create design sheets, mock ups, prototypes and experimental swatches
  • Create a final outcome such as a painting, mixed media work, a set of illustrations or designs, or a sculpture

Designed and facilitated by Phoenix artist and PT 19+ Art and Design Foundation Leader, MET College, Dagmara Rudkin.

This course is suitable for all levels including beginners.

Red Room, Phoenix Art Space

You will be supplied with all the basic tools and materials including paper, paint and 3D materials.

The tutor will be able to advise you on purchasing additional art materials as your project progresses.
