In this magical world you will create a playful alter-ego of yourself, as well as design and make the other world in which this being lives. You will also learn to customise clothes and use acrylic paints to create the studio set of your alter-ego’s ‘world’.

In this world you will play with the medium of Zoom - the ‘digital window’ through which our painted worlds will be framed. You will also discover about inspiring artists, such as Rebecca Horn, Nick Cave, Monster Chetwynd and Cinzia Ruggeri. We will practise drawing and painting on fabrics and for the character’s backdrop.

Each artist will create a personalised wearable artwork and build an installation designed for this magical world. This is an online arts course.

Art Forms: Fashion, painting, photography, performance art, scenic design.
