SUMMER SCHOOL for artist teachers
Tuesday 30th August – Thursday 1st September 2011
This three-day intensive course aims to further your enthusiasm for making art. The course, led by artist Sharon Wilson, will be a chance to explore the process of making art. Throughout the course, participants will have the opportunity to consider their own artistic practice and how it might be developed within a supportive and creative environment.

Sharon Wilson is a multi-disciplinary artist and curator, who uses found objects, digital imagery, drawings and sound. She is currently undertaking a PHD at Sunderland University and is part of BALTIC freelance team of artists. She recently exhibited and curated a show in New York and is developing a project to take artworks to show in Bejing. Northumbria University staff also teach on the summer school.

The summer school forms an essential component of the MA Fine Art and Education and is an exciting and innovative collaboration between Northumbria University and BALTIC. The fee for the summer school is paid by Northumbria for those students entering the MA.
It is a great taster for those thinking about undertaking the MA in future years.
