Wrestling with the Demons of Design

August 7, 2014

 Experimental Research for Advanced Design

 401 Diploma – Garnets

  For 2 years (8 – 5 day sessions), this group of 9 students (named Garnets) met at our Center to explore their personally chosen design themes. The travel and art journey was not always easy. They travelled by car, plane and boat to arrive at each session from Canada and the U.S,A.  They came to wrestle with the demons of design and to express themselves with original artwork.  Here’s a short paragraph that briefly explains the enticement of the course brochure:

The course provides students an opportunity to choose, research, explore, experiment, document and develop a major inspirational theme.  A professional body of artwork will flow from the research of the theme. Students will be encouraged to develop their own innovative and inventive design ideas.  Personal expression and more complex imagery will come from new techniques learned in the course along with those from Level 3 Art and Design.  Follow us in the next few blogs as each graduate will show their artwork developed especially for this course.

    We have just about finished hanging the exhibition. All 9 students are still energetic and exuberant. Gail
