Foundation 2 week Haikus

Haikus about the first 2 weeks of the foundation::

 

It was a real breeze

We don’t ever want to leave

Let us do art please

 

Two weeks of college

Is a wonderful mind f**k

To be honest

 

It was amazing

Meet new people and new skills

Hope it really kills

 

I made some good friends,

on my day out to Southend

Hmm, how will this end?

 

Got in to college

Didn’t know what to expect

I have no regrets

“Deciding on an overall winner for the Principals and Governors prize certainly was a difficult choice to make but the chosen ones stood out for us as judges. All the pieces in the show were fantastic.

“I want to congratulate and wish all our learners the very best of luck in their next steps, whether that is university, employment or further training and to thank them for choosing WMC-The Camden College as the college to further their education.”

Feast Creative Poster Porject

The Visual Communications learners on the Foundation Diploma in art and design have been working on a live brief set by Simon Williams from Feast Creative. Feast Creative are a local design company working just round the corner from the college who work within the theatre industry producing posters and other marketing images. You may well recognize their work from “The Cursed Child” the recent Harry Potter production!

Simon visited the college and gave the learners a brief to produce a poster for one of two productions: Pygmalion or Macbeth, he then returned to do a critique with the group half way through and then again for the final presentations.

“Feast were delighted to be involved in a hands on project with the WMC Foundation Course students.

We were really pleased with the creative solutions that the students came up with for the theatre poster project. It was impressive to see the transition from their early sketches and ideas through to the final poster visuals and how they took on the constructive guidance we gave during the midway feedback sessions. Excellent work.”

9. Hannah Black (Born Manchester. Lives and works in Berlin)
Chisenhale have just announced a new commission and first solo institutional show for the artist/ writer/ theorist, and not a moment too soon: it feels like Black’s omnipresent already, on the page, online, and in the gallery. To get the ball rolling, there was her much-tweeted review of the 9th Berlin Biennale in Artforum and fall screenings of her film works at the New Museum in NY. Over the summer at a performance event at the ICA she released the character Anxietina who is “transformed by the power of anxiety” into, “a force for simultaneous good and evil”: a perfect character for our times, then.unspecified-1-3
