Year 10: Fine Art Online Arts Award Course

Course Content

Fine Art:

During this course, you will be working with artist Georgia de Buriatte to not only make your own arts portfolio and collaborative publication; but will also work towards receiving a Bronze Arts Award, which is a nationally recognised qualification. By doing so you will develop your own artistic practice, and gain experience and knowledge of the Creative Industry.

In the online workshops, you will be working through a creative theme that is personal and chosen by you to ensure it is something you really are interested in and will be helpful for your future. You will explore concepts such as ‘how to look at art’, quality researching of makers that interest you, careers in the creative industry, and different ways of creating yourself. You will also work together with the group to each create a page for a collaborative publication which will be digitally collated and shared.

Each day will begin by covering the topic with Georgia in a taught section, before moving on to making your own work separately, then coming back together for a summary and review of the day.

Online Participation

The course will be taking place within an online classroom on Blackboard Collaborate, a secure platform which is used by University for the Creative Arts.

You may wish to participate via audio, though this is not a requirement and we recommend participation via the chat/messaging function on the page. You will not use a webcam or participate via video. All sessions will be monitored and supervised by University of the Creative Arts employees and will be recorded to allow for multiple viewings by students on the course. 

Participants will be sent a secure link to the virtual classroom each week and this will ensure that only students with an approved place on the course and UCA employees will have access to the room.
