Art + Tech Programme
The students in the Bermuda National Gallery Art + Tech Summer Camp have been exploring a wide range of art making processes under the direction of education officer Louisa Bermingham.
Using the exhibitions on display as a starting point for their projects, the students have been focusing on a variety of art making skills – from traditional techniques such as drawing, sculpture, printmaking and textiles to digital technologies such as stop motion animation and digital drawing, often fusing the two together.
What’s Poppin’! Pop Art and Its Influence, currently on display in the Watlington Gallery, provided an introduction to the process of screen printing. Students created their own prints inspired by Lifesavers from Andy Warhol‘s iconic Ads Portfolio, reflecting his fascination with American advertising, consumerism and commercialism.
Gherdai Hassell‘s Interactions Bermuda, currently on display in the Young Gallery as part of Let Me Tell You Something the 2020 Bermuda Biennial, served as a reference point for collage from which students created their own large scale mixed media portraits.
