Ian Murphy Artists Summer School
World-famous artist, Ian Murphy will return to The Mount this summer. Ian will deliver a unique Summer School experience open to 14-18 year-olds. This fantastic opportunity will offer pupils the chance to work up close and personal with a professional artist. With a focus on providing ideal preparation for portfolio developmental work, required at both GSCE and A Level, this course will see attendees gain advantageous advice and guidance that will set their application to higher education institutions apart from others.
Following a successful artist workshop experience with College I earlier in the year, The Mount School were excited to invite Ian Murphy back, with the option to extend the invitation to other age groups, and both pupils and external candidates. The girls in College I created a series of impressive large scale pieces and learnt valuable techniques and tips. They feedback that they would not have attempted this had it not being for Ian’s encouragement. To view their pics, visit the gallery.
I have not done something like this before. This is insane! I feel like it’s very effective and I like the fact that he uses layers, I like the depth and the meaning behind it on his pieces.” – Izzy, College I
