UCL Slade Summer School

22 June 2006

The UCL Slade School of Fine Art has a number of summer programmes on offer for all abilities, ranging from 10 weeks to one week in duration.

The unique Slade Summer School Foundation Programme in Fine Art runs for 10 weeks from 3 July to 8 September 2006.

The foundation course is well established as an excellent introduction to the study of fine art. It sustains and develops students' abilities and interests over the period of study and offers an outstanding opportunity for an intense engagement with fine art practice. Students will practice drawing, painting, sculpture and media, with options to work in print, video, photography and digital processes. Studio practice is supported through tutorials, workshops, lectures and seminars.

For those with less time on their hands, the Slade Summer School Short Course Programme holds one- and two-week courses in fine art and caters for all interests. Courses include drawing, photography, introduction to Photoshop, painting and sculpture. This year, four new courses have been introduced - 'Making a Book', 'Observational Painting', 'On Looking' and 'Woodcut'. In addition to the evening lecture/gallery programme, classes include slide talks and seminars to complement the studio timetable.

Courses are open to artists and students of all levels of experience, and places are allocated on a first-come basis on receipt of the application form and deposit.
