NIGHT SCHOOL
term 3

november and december 2018

WHAT IS IT?

welcome to the third term of ebc's 6-week 'art school' course - run by ebc with another six independent artists.

each week begins with an artist's talk, followed by a practical workshop that gives an insight into some of the ideas and processes that the artist explores in their work, or could introduce the group to other interests that influence the artists' practices.

previous workshops have included; collage, drawing onto 16 mm film, writing, mobile phone videos, sound, drawing exercises, clay modelling, stamping, and green screen recordings.

materials are normally provided by ebc. there may be occasions when participants will be asked to bring a laptop / smartphone, but this equipment can be provided if necessary. there will be time to look over the results of the workshops at the following week's session.

each class is a stand-alone session, so participants shouldn't worry if they have to miss a week for other commitments.

WHERE IS IT?

night school is hosted by arnolfini

WHO IS IT FOR?

the course is open to anyone interested in contemporary art, or wishing to learn about how artists make work and use materials. you do not have to have undertaken previous terms of night school.

the night school might have particular relevance for the following: artists who have been practicing for some time and are looking for new ideas, artists new to the south west and looking to meet other artists, foundation stage students looking to prepare additional work for University portfolio, sixth-form or FE students looking to apply to higher education art courses (undergraduate or foundation stage). night school facilitators can also provide advice with interview/portfolio preparation and technique.

WHAT IS NIGHT SCHOOL PLUS: practice & development

night school plus (NS PLUS) is for students that wish to have more 1-2-1 input on their own practice. a smaller group will meet in the hour before the main night school and the visiting artist will talk about an area of professional development, for instance documenting work, applying for funding, designing a website, planning exhibitions etc. there will then be a number of 1-2-1 sessions available with the artist and with Jack who is co-director of ebc to either discuss further the professional development topic or the student's practice as a whole.

COST

full price: £75*
concessions: £65 (inc. students, unemployed, asylum seekers & existing ebc members)
