REALISING YOUR POTENTIALARTIST MENTORING PROGRAMME (AMP)
Artists Anne-Sophie Adelys and Andy Tolhurst have teamed up to offer a mentoring programme that will take you to the next step in your arts practice.
AMP is an exciting 32 week mentoring programme, aimed at intermediate and experienced artists. Each term will cover one aspect of arts practice. Students will receive guidance and mentoring from professional arts practitioners, develop their concept and participate in a group exhibition at the end of term 2 and term 4. This course will encourage artists to develop a professional art practice, create a body of work, be better prepared to navigate the arts environment and understand its expectations.
ABOUT THE COURSE:
