The Sketchbook Project is brought to you by the Short Course programming team at West Dean College of Arts and Conservation. The project is designed to bring you regular inspiration from the Gardens which can be used to draw, paint, stitch or print using the colours, textures and shapes from the images in your work.
In this blog post, Foundation Diploma in Art and Design student Vanessa McGlone talks about her pop-up exhibition she held in her garden during lockdown. The show, titled 'Impermanence', showed her concept body of work of hand stitched squares of paper on which she painted a number of landscapes and figures. Find out more in this blog post.
Diploma in Art and Contemporary Crafts (DACC) students Mary Hennessey Jones, Sarah Johns and Robin Bray-Hurren have set up a new reading group with the aim to look at art history through a feminist and queer theory lense. A text, film or other media is selected to discuss at each meeting.
