The Portfolio course consists of two 8 week terms from November to March. It is full time Monday - Thursday with
additional weekend projects. The course is aimed at people who wish to gain entry to Art School or would like
the opportunity to study at a deeper level. For further information see Portfolio course.
To take advantage of the location and the dramatic landscape, most courses will be based outside
at least fifty per cent of the week, giving students the chance to explore the landscape in many
innovative ways. Time in the studio is used to develop work and explore different media at greater depth. Also the
studio is a place to eat lunch, enjoy company and talk over the day's work in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.
All courses run from 9.30am till 4.00pm with a simple lunch provided. It is important to wear old clothes and bring old outdoor clothes too,
as art outside is a messy business.
