Tate Modern offers students a place at summer school

Four talented Fine Art students from the BTEC Foundation Diploma in Art & Design and the Extended Diploma in Art & Design have been fortunate enough to be selected by the Tate for an all expenses paid summer school in Denmark in August 2012.

Charlotte Bradley, Chloé Seaton; Lizi Watts and Rosie Harvey-Otway will be involved in an exciting international summer school taking place at the Louisiana Museum in Humlebaek, Denmark. Artists, institutions and young people will come together to explore the value of participatory practice and international exchange.

This innovative pilot programme is part of the The Unilever Series: turbinegeneration - a project about international collaboration and exchange that connects schools, colleges, galleries and artists across the world. Its primary aims are to promote public understanding and enjoyment of contemporary, modern, British and International Art, and to create a worldwide community and network of globally active and aware citizens.

As we’re approaching the end of the academic year, students on our art courses are excited to be exhibiting their work to the public from Monday 25th June – Friday 29th June between 10am and 4pm (except Friday when the show will close at 2pm).

Our doors will be open to the public who are very welcome to come along to support our incredibly talented students. These young artists have been working hard all year to create projects in Fine Art, Illustration, Fashion & Textiles and 3D design to name a few.
