Course Notes

Big Art will look at lots of different forms of creating. You will try drawing, painting, immersive art, land art, sculpture and mural. You will learn about different land artists such as Richard Long, Andy Goldsworthy and Agnes Denes. You will look at how art responds to the environment and how it can highlight issues or ideas.

Learn new techniques and be inspired by using different materials than you are used to. We will use the local environment to share our ideas, to respond to with our pieces and to provide our materials.

You will make large sculptures which play with form on a big scale. These might be inspired by local and international pieces such as the Marlborough White horse or ancient pyramids. You will make smaller pieces on your own and learn how to create sculptures and murals together too.

All materials will be provided for you, please be ready to get messy!
