    ReachOutRCA Studio Day

    A year 10 GCSE Art and Design classaccompanied by Ms. Karen Smith and Ms. Laura Daniel were very fortunate to take part in a ReachOutRCA Studio Day  led by 1st Year MA Painting students,  a workshop at the Royal College of Art on the 23rd January 2017. The workshop gave the students a chance to explore ideas and processes relating to the MA student's working practice and to think imaginatively and critically about the work. The students explored abstraction; key research interests for both the MA artists through hands-on activities, producing work inspired by creative ‘rules’ and experimental approaches to painting, as well as an exciting behind-the-scenes tour of the Painting department. They thoroughly enjoyed the experience and their active enthusiastic participation reflected well on the calibre of Dunraven students. The work they produced is an asset to their GCSE portfolio. The photographs here mirror the success of the day.
