Discovery College: Photo Club (October – December 2021)

Discovery College returns in autumn 2021, in partnership with Photoworks, Brighton.

About Photo Club

Develop new creative skills, find out about contemporary photography and photographers, and create your own artwork. Photography can help us to stay in the moment and take notice of the world around us. We can use photography to explore feelings and ideas and help us make sense of things.

You will be encouraged to experiment and explore a range of different approaches to photography. Photo Club will encourage confidence in expressing your ideas and feelings, as well as enabling teamwork in a supportive and friendly environment.

Ever wanted to see your artwork online? Well, this course offers you that chance. You don’t need any prior photography or creative skills or experience. All you need to take part is a Smartphone or camera and access to Zoom through a Smartphone, laptop or computer.

Photo Club is facilitated by artist Lynn Weddle, peer mentor Amiee Staples and mental health practitioner Rachel Hines.

Photo Club will be a blended creative experience, delivered in person onsite at De La Warr Pavilion and online, see dates and times below.

Art Lab (February – April 2020)

Art Lab was a pilot series of weekly sessions for 14-20 year olds experiencing social, emotional or mental health challenges. It was led by creative practitioner Annis Joslin and mental health specialist Rivkah Cummerson, and delivered in partnership with Sussex Discovery College.

Art Lab introduced young people to creative skills and techniques and encourage open-ended experimentation through a range of disciplines (e.g. sculpture, photography, drawing, printmaking, collage and animation). Through visits to the exhibitions at the De La Warr Pavilion, the group explore and unravel some ideas and processes found within the galleries. Art Lab will nurture talent, confidence, resilience, friendships and health self-management in a relaxed, flexible and inquiring atmosphere.

Art Lab was kindly supported by the Red Hill Trust.
