Creative Spring Break for Teachers: This is an opportunity to ​celebrate your creativity! 

We wanted to take you back ​to your creative roots and get you ​into the classroom and playing ​with the materials and process.​ Because as we all know the best ​way to learn is through play and ​the more skills we have, the better ​we can teach!

During this event you will take part in a series of workshops designed to give you a creative exploration of visual language and messaging designed to get you thinking about how images and words can be used to support each other to create an engaging narrative.

This session will involve:

  • Life Drawing- To start you off we will get into our life drawing lab to explore the form of the body and how it can be captured with sweeping strokes and playful lines ​
  • Light Painting- Then we will get you into the photo studio and start manipulating light and time to create dynamic shapes and effects
  • Expansive Drawing​- And for the final workshop we will be combining light and illustration in an expanded environment. ​Providing space, and time to extend or make departures from your usual practice of drawing. ​This will engaging you in an activity that challenges, blends, reframes and expands conventional drawing disciplines and methodologies. 
  • Showcase!

With the success of these events last year we recommend you book on as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment. If you have any questions about this event, please contact student.recruitment@sunderland.ac.uk.
