In Term 3, the education team is working tirelessly to breathe fresh air into the education space. They have undertaken reorganization, painting, and revamping to create an improved creative atmosphere.
The team is also dedicated to continuing their mission of recycling, repurposing, and reducing the carbon footprint. Students are encouraged to print on both sides of their paper when proofing their images, and the team is even in the process of establishing their own paper-making mill.
The art of making paper will become a part of the curriculum for students in the 1st to 4th year. The paper produced will be used for printing, paper products, and pulp painting, and the team eagerly anticipates launching this new artistic practice in the upcoming months.
To further enhance their offerings, the team has made changes to their part-time (Saturday) education program. They have replaced it with open printing sessions, allowing artists to come and print on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The fee for the day is R350, covering utilities, a few consumables, tools, and printing assistance. However, it's important to note that the fee does not include paper and plates. To make a booking for the open printing session on Saturdays, interested individuals can contact Precious Mahapa Email: email@example.com
To combat the cold winter blues, the education team has decided to inject positivity and enthusiasm by exploring colour in Term 3. For the Printmaking course, the 1st-year group will be introduced to the Silkscreen technique, creating a range of multilayered pop art-inspired pieces. Meanwhile, the 2nd-year students have embarked on an intensive drawing block dedicated to studying the human anatomy of the male and female adult figure using various colour techniques. As for the 3rd-year students, they are focusing on consolidating their advanced etching skills in preparation for the end-of-year exhibition.
Join us at Artist Proof Studio's Open Day on the 5th of August to explore our vibrant artistic community, witness live demonstrations by our students, and seize the opportunity to apply for the 2024 programme!
