Six sessions are to run on consecutive weeks using objects familiar to everyone and perhaps mean something to each learner. This will be the starting point to explore some different ways of representation. The ‘still life’ could be made from stones and shells collected on the beach, flowers and seed heads found in the garden, a favourite mug or even a pair of shoes! The same thing or group of things will be used for each of the 6 sessions exploring different ways of representation by using different media.

Costs: £30 for a six week course (this includes all materials, resources and weekly zoom sessions).

Concessions: Courses are FREE for people with disabilities or for people with fewer than 5 GCSE’s (level 2).
