During the summer school, you will explore a range of visual communication disciplines, including Photography, Graphic Communication and Illustration. Taking inspiration from Birmingham and the surrounding area, you will work with staff to develop a sequence or series of visual outcomes.
What will you study?
You will be introduced to a range of processes and materials, developing new skills and referencing the work of contemporary practitioners. From this, you will develop a sequence or series of images, supported by a reflective visual journal. Your tutors will work with you to give you an understanding of idea and will teach you some basic creative, conceptual and technical skills to enable you to realise your ideas. The culmination of the course will be an exhibition of your visual work.
