The first years get their teeth into the project
Learning and fun!How to understand and work with colour-part 1.
Continuing with their exploration of all aspects of colour the first years get to grips with the science bit!
How do you achieve that perfect tone,how do you made that a shade lighter,how do you set the colour for good? All is revealed.
We believe that a really good grasp and understanding of colour basics allows the student to realise and create their own colour identity.It’s then that the student starts to think ‘what if I…..’?
The rules begin to be broken and new and exciting trends start to emerge.
Not only do students gain confidence in their ability they also become independent, secure in the knowledge that, if they get lost, they can always go back to the beginning and reinvent.It’s a magical time.
These images show the dye and wet print area in full experimental use by the degree students during the spring term.
The MA students are working over the summer months using all the facilities.
However staff still find time to prepare the rooms ready for the return of all the students in September.
Tables cleaned and prepared,dye ordered,screens prepared,equipment serviced,samples prepared everything spic and span ready for the modules to unfold.
Over the summer we look at how we will improve and amend the project briefs.
Drawing and colour are the first topics for the new intake of 1st year students in October in Bath UK
Looking over the module we check to see that we are meeting the outcomes and that the learning is successful,measurable and put into immediate practice.
We have a so many new ideas on how to develop but as you can see we can’t squeeze much more in!.
We know it was well received and by the look on the students faces it was quite often fun!
Everyone is looking forward to another autumn awash with colour at the School of Art and Design
