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. Sarah Shalgosky, Curator of the Mead Gallery and Associate Lecturer at the University of Warwick, will chair the day.
