The University for the Creative Arts Farnham hosted and organised a highly engaging silk screen workshop and exhibition tour for A level Fine Art Farnham Sixth Form College students. This unique experience provided the students with an introduction into Fine Art practice at the UCA, and allowed them to explore the excellent print facilities at the university site.
As part of the activity they investigated imagery to create different compositions and meanings. Two printed layers were used to establish background and foreground in response to the work of R.B. Kitaj. The screen printings produced were lively, energetic and diverse in combining different types of visual information designed to break the boundaries of gender and politics. In viewing the diversity of the degree shows, students were able to experience a range of art and design practice and explore how this can engage and inform an audience and relate to the real world. More exciting fine art collaborative projects are to be planned between the UCA and Farnham Sixth Form College. Many thanks to UCA Farnham for inviting the students along and we look forward to the next project!
