SAW InspirED Education Projects
New Territories with Richard Huish College
Watch a 2 minute film documenting artist Sara Dudman working with Richard Huish College art students.
The day was planned to support A Level art students’ confidence, ambition, ability to engage and discuss ideas, feelings and responses to art works and exhibitions, plus providing opportunities to learn more about artists’ career paths and collaborative practice. A deconstructed drawing activity enabled students to gain confidence and become responsive and intuitive in their approaches to drawing.
