More importantly, they would have grown in confidence and capacity for creative practices. Through the course, they get to explore and experience a variety of media and materials that help define visual sensibilities and initiate a personal and expressive creative language. Each student is encouraged to produce a body of work and the practical exposure during the workshop directly contributes to their portfolio. The week-long workshop will culminate in a display of work created by each participant, accompanied by a discussion helping them reflect on their learning.
