    • PROGRESS

      An exhibition by Andrew Holmes (Professor, School of Architecture). PROGRESS is a set of 20 hand drawn black and white realist images and texts that update John Bunyan’s allegory: The Pilgrims Progress, to the 21st century. Pilgrim’s wife is re-imagined as a female private detective driving through the sub-prime landscape of California, observing the locations of the original trials. The drawings are seen in the context of markedly sombre and austere black and white photographic prints that depict the surrounding landscape. Nature is seen as dark, intimidating, and threatening rather than benign.

    • Portfolio Preparation for Art and Design Spring Course

      Explore the elements of an Art & Design Foundation course across a variety of disciplines. In the Portfolio Preparation for Art & Design course you will have the opportunity to explore a diverse range of techniques and processes. Drawing is fundamental to Art & Design and good drawing skills are strongly recommended for entry to the foundation course, therefore you will have the opportunity to experiment with life drawing in a variety of media and approaches, along with structured drawing projects. These may include Printmaking, Graphics, Textiles, Drawing on location, 3D Sculpture or Ceramics in order to ensure that you will have a broad range of work at the end of the course. Classes are run with a low ratio of staff to students – approximately one tutor for every 10 students, which allows for in-depth learning and development. One to one portfolio advice will be given as well as instructions on how to mount and present your work in your portfolio. Please be aware that homework in the form of a Daily Drawing Diary will be given and is a requirement of the course.
