SUMMER SCHOOL AT UCLAN
We have worked in collaboration with UCLAN, University of Central Lancashire, where CAbyZK was responsible for delivering and organising workshops for the Summer School. The purpose of the workshop for the summer school was for all young people to come together and see what university life would be and a taster day of the kind of work one would be expected to produce on an art and design course. Also involved, was ensuring that a high standard of teaching was delivered. We have had the opportunity to work with students and young people, including under 16s.
Working closely with UCLAN CAbyZK came up with an exciting workshop to encourage young people to explore, challenge and have fun through art. Zaneb Khatun designed a fashion illustration using collage and mixed media as a drawing tool. The workshop introduced endless drawing styles using collage techniques to draw whit; this allowed the young people to go away and then explore them and put them into practice. Young people were encouraged to take full ownership of their work and allow their own drawing style to appear, which allowed young people to challenge themselves and demonstrate their full potential and most of all enjoy themselves.
The workshop worked very well within the summer school, which encouraged young people to study art and design related subjects at University.
