Event description

Description

Sydney College of the Arts at the University of Sydney will hold a Portfolio and Workshops Day on Saturday 12 October 2019, from 10am to 1pm, to assist you with preparing your portfolio and application to study our three-year Bachelor of Visual Arts and our four-year Bachelor of Visual Arts and Bachelor of Advanced Studies.

The Portfolio and Workshops Day is a fantastic opportunity for you to meet with our academic staff and receive feedback on your portfolio and visual arts practice.

During the Portfolio and Workshops Day, we will also be holding a number of workshops on the visual arts, delivered by our leading contemporary artists and academic portfolio reviewers.

Watercolour Workshop
Watercolours Workshop

This workshop will introduce you to painting with watercolours on watercolour paper, and collage, with the aim of exploring formal translations between the painted and the photographic image.

Jewellery & Object Workshop
Jewellery Workshop
This workshop will introduce the process of forming flat sheet metal into a 3-dimensional form using a hydraulic press. We will also look at simple processes for adding texture and colour. The objects we make can be used as pendants or earrings. Each participant will take home 2 pieces – 1 in titanium and 1 in another metal of choice (copper or brass).

Film Scratching Workshop Film Scratching Workshop Films get made with a camera, right? Not always. This workshop introduces you to the magical world of experimental cinema and the analogue scratch film. You will be given a strip of 16mm celluloid to cut, paint, bleach and puncture, then watch it play back on a projector (or Steenbeck) to see the results. Your film will then be Telecine'd at SCA and sent to you to keep.

Collage WorkshopCollage WorkshopThis workshop is a fun way to explore the medium of collage and to practically engage with the history of this influential medium. We will consider a variety of ways we construct images and challenge the old conventions of figure-ground compositions via a medium that was made to disrupt.
