SPRING SCHOOL 2017

 

CENTRE FOR GRAPHIC, ILLUSTRATIVE AND BOOK ARTS  (CGIBA)

 

VISUAL ARTS DEPARTMENT   -    STELLENBOSCH UNIVERSITY

 

This is a reminder that the Creative Workshops will once again take place at the Visual Arts Department, Stellenbosch University - from Monday 4 to Friday 8 September. It gives the general public an opportunity to make use of the infrastructure of the arts department, as well as their teaching skills by enrolling for one of a variety of short courses.

 

Experienced arts practitioners will facilitate the workshops thereby ensuring quality instruction.

 

All the courses are introductory, but can also be attended by artists who wish to become acquainted with new disciplines. 10 participants per course ensures special attention to each individual. Courses are offered only if at least 4 participants register for a particular course.

 

Duration of each workshop is 5 days and the cost includes about 30 hours of teaching, practical work and outings where necessary. On the Friday, at 17h00, there will be an exhibition of work completed during the week. Friends and family are welcome to join for a glass of wine.

Each participant will receive a Certificate of Participation endorsed by the Visual Arts Department.
