Fine Art (Lino Printing and Book Making) - Year 12

Course Content

Fine Art (Lino Printing and Book Making)

In this online Arts Award crash course you will be working alongside fine artist Georgia de Buriatte to develop your own artistic practice and gain experience and knowledge of the Arts and Cultural Sector. Not only learning new artistic methods but vital skills for progressing in the creative industry.

You will attend 10 sessions over 5 days to learn practical methods such as lino carving, bookbinding, and portfolio construction; and art theory such as quality artists research, skill-sharing, and experiencing arts events. All important skills for anyone wanting to enter the creative sector!

During these workshops, there will be a combination of follow along live demonstrations with Georgia making use of your materials packs, university-style seminars, and personal time to develop your own work.

You will begin by choosing a creative theme that is personal and chosen by you, allowing you chance to develop your own style and ensuring the project is useful for your future in the creative sector, whether that is aiding university applications, internships, or perhaps job roles!
