For the second year running Farnham College hosted another highly successful life drawing workshop for A Level Art and Design students. This was taught by internationally renowned and talented local artist, Alison Orchard.
Working alongside a professional artist, the Art students were introduced to a unique and exciting range of skills and techniques working from live professional models. This ranged from traditional methods to mixed media approaches. Graphic Design students also used digital pads to embrace more contemporary technology.
The examples of dynamic work produced allows an invaluable learning experience and also provides students with the opportunity to develop their portfolios for application to employment and higher education.
The three day workshop culminated in an exhibition of selected examples by each student in the Conference Room at Farnham College with a Private View on Thursday 6 February from 6.00-8.00pm. The exhibition was open from Monday 3 – Thursday 6 February. Donations from the John Verney Trust were used to fund this event which also underlines the strong support from the local community.
Julian Thompson Head of Art said, “The workshop at Farnham College provides a valuable and absorbing creative learning experience with students attending from across our Art and Design programme. 3D Architecture, Photography and Fine Art students work alongside each other and the results are quite amazing.”
