About this day
For A-level, IB, Foundation and BTEC Level 3 students
We return this year with another exciting day of Art & Design at the Warwick Arts Centre. In this visually stimulating programme, students will meet and learn from four leading artists working in different areas, to get a taste of what inspires them and how they make their living as artists. Come armed with a question and hear how ideas become art. We are delighted to announce that leading documentary photographer Simon Norfolk has agreed to join us, together with award-winning textile artist Anna Glover. Sarah Shalgosky, Curator of the Mead Gallery and Associate Lecturer at the University of Warwick, will chair the day. Two more exciting artists to be announced!
