Introduction Art and Design Studies: Summer 2012 Welcome to our summer programme for Art and Design Studies. For 22 years, the summer school held at Edinburgh College of Art has offered the opportunity to study and practice art and design in a spirit of exchange and cultural community. This year’s courses retain the ethos of intensive art and design practice and enquiry through studio and workshop disciplines. Our summer programme is delivered in one of the world’s most renowned art colleges which is now part of one of the UK’s largest ‘Russell Group’ universities with an international reputation for leading edge research, learning and teaching. Many students enrol on our courses to take the first steps into serious creative endeavour, some to rekindle and revisit a lost passion, while more and more are thinking about new careers as artists, designers or within a creative industry. All our courses will give you insight and practical experience of professional practice and research to test and stretch your creative abilities and how you see the world around you. Previous students have variously described the experience as ‘challenging’, ‘exciting’, ‘exhausting’ and even ‘life changing’ and you should gain a real sense of personal fulfilment. Our 5 day courses will involve a leap of faith, risk taking and moving out of comfort zones, but our dedicated team of tutors, all practicing professional artists and designers, are there to support you and coax the best out of you – and enhance how you approach making art and design works well beyond the end of the course.

Have a browse through this year’s programme of courses and imagine yourself with five uninterrupted days immersing yourself in your work alongside other equally committed and enthusiastic students. Enrolling on a course has never been easier – you can now browse the programme and book your courses online. Once you have taken the plunge and enrolled on a course, why not start keeping a sketchbook to get you motivated and in the mood? Draw things you see, doodle ideas when you are on the phone or at meetings, research artists, designers and collect and take photographs and images that interest or intrigue you. These small beginnings might be developed and transformed into accomplished sculptures, prints, paintings, textile designs or pieces of jewellery on display at our end of week exhibitions. You will find our courses more affordable than ever with many course fees reduced from those in 2011. More than half of the courses also offer you the option of studying for credit and having your work assessed at no extra cost. There is more information about this on page 2. I look forward to meeting many of you and seeing your creative accomplishments during your studies with us this summer. Robbie Bushe, Coordinator Art and Design Studies at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh

About Our Courses Art and Design Studies summer courses are delivered in specialist studios and workshops at the Lauriston Place campus of Edinburgh College of Art. Class size ranges from 8 to 16 students. Each course will typically include practical exercises, introduction to techniques, processes and concepts, and set projects which lead to more focused and personal exploration. Teaching may include practical demonstrations, one to one tuition, group discussions and critiques. Your progress will be supported by your tutor who will agree a ‘directed study plan’ with you, both for work in the studio and, for those studying for credit, work to be undertaken beyond the class hours. All our courses are delivered at SCQF level 7 (entry level at University). However, the level within any group in a course might vary from beginner for some students, to intermediate or more advanced for others. Each course description includes a ‘pre-requisite’ section which tells you whether or not some experience (and what kind) is recommended in order for you to get the most out of the course.

Age Limit

All students must be 16 years or older by 10 July 2012.

Study for credit? The choice is yours

Art & Design Studies Summer Courses 2012 Throughout this brochure you will see that courses are described as ‘Portfolio Preparation’, ‘Foundation’ or ‘Intermediate’.

Portfolio Preparation courses are designed to support

students who are interested in applying for a place on a degree programme at Edinburgh College of Art and are also appropriate for any students who wishes to undertake a general course focussing on either art or design.

Foundation courses are not credit bearing and are

intended to enable you to acquire the basic skills you need to undertake further study in a range of art or design disciplines.

Intermediate courses are credit bearing and each course

carries 10 credits. These courses range in nature from the first steps in a specific subject through to those requiring more developed skills. The pre-requisites described for each course will give you an idea of what kind of experience you may need in order to get the most out of a course.

{i} All Art and Design Studies Summer 2012 courses are

‘intensive’ courses and bear this symbol. This means that they are distinct versions of Art and Design Studies courses offered throughout the year.

{ila}

’ILA Approved’– All courses approved by ILA Scotland carry this symbol. You may use your ILA learner account toward the fee. See page 33.

Pre-requisites for enrolment: Suitable for students with some art or design experience who are interested in applying for degree study in design.

Aspiring artists and designers need good sketchbooks to record visual ideas and thoughts for later development. An individual and original sketchbook collects research, helps to process images and demonstrates the imagination and creativity to study art and design at Art College. It provides a place to record ideas quickly, make drawings and notes, and discover over time where personal interests lie. In this course, students will collect images from both primary and secondary sources, using a mixture of location based observations, drawing, mixed media, collage and annotations and develop visual ideas beyond the sketchbook.

This course will provide practical support for students considering applying for degree courses in a ‘Design’ subject, such as fashion, graphic design, product design, illustration, jewellery or animation. Students will undertake a range of practical projects which will encourage using drawing and research to expand and develop personal ideas exploring a range of techniques and skills. The course will look at ways to integrate design practices, research and contextual awareness using a sketchbook and through a series of development works suitable for presentation for the online ‘mini-portfolio’ as well as preparation of a portfolio to take to interview. Advice will be given on strategies for recording and evidencing work digitally to reveal strengths and main interests. Emphasis will be placed on ways to select, edit and present the work suitable for a portfolio presentation.

Pre-requisites for enrolment: No previous art or design experience required. Suitable for complete beginners or those with limited experience.

The main goal in this course is to build confidence for students with little experience in art and design. Students will be guided through approaches and processes with tutor demonstrations and ‘hands-on’ individual practice. Over the week, students will be given a range of introductory exercises working from still life, the life model and secondary sources covering the uses of drawing and painting materials and techniques ‘step-by-step’. The course is designed to engender skills which can unleash the imagination to enable students to make their own distinctive images.

Week 1: 16 – 20 July »

Pre-requisites for enrolment: Some previous drawing experience is desirable.

An enjoyable and accessible starting point to this popular printmaking technique, this course is for those who have never tried screen-printing. Working from their own source material, which may include sketchbooks, drawings or photographs, the student will learn how to create a set of prints which exploit the unique properties of screen-printing in a way that is individual to them.
