Summer School 2018 - Week 3
This week, the group took part in workshops and location visits that helped to develop new skills and unlock their creative potential in preparation for the exhibition.
The first workshop enabled everyone to experiment with 3D design, using letters as shapes and forms. Their work also considered how positive and negative shapes can be used to create forms and structures in 3D. This design concept was explored further in context to fashion design. Everyone experimented by crafting patterns on paper and card using letters as shapes and forms. The positive and negative shapes were explored further to create forms and structures in textiles, pattern design and fashion garments. By the end of the workshops, a range of ambitious works were displayed on plinths and mannequins throughout the ISCA studios.
Trips and location visits were also arranged during the final week of the Summer Programme. They were organised to develop observation skills and respond to the brief through careful selection and investigation. These visits were themed on observing people and personalities in East London, branding and advertising in Covent Garden.
The final day of the Summer Programme was filled with excitement and anticipation for the exhibition. Everyone worked tremendously hard and with intense focus on presenting their work with as much visual impact as possible. All of the ISCA tutors remarked on the outstanding work from the entire group, while referencing the improvements of each individual. After receiving certificates and awards, a bonfire featuring ice cream and refreshments brought the summer school to a fun and wholesome ending.
