Sketchbooks showcase with Heath Park School sixth form students

The Visual Communications department has welcomed Heath Park School sixth form students. 

Visitors were inspired by looking at undergraduate sketchbook work, shown here being presented by Senior Lecturer in Visual Communication, Ben Kelly. A range of work was discussed, including narrative illustration, editorial pieces, design with typography, collage, drawing, painting and three-dimensional designs. Inspired by seeing these examples, Heath Park School sixth form went on to undertake two workshops linked to their coursework, printmaking, responding by their interest in pop art, with subject leader of Visual Communication, John Clementson, and typography referencing the designs of contemporary graphic designers with Visual Communication Artist in Residence Josh Grice.

Visitors met Lisa Law from the University Careers department who discussed employability and placement support offered by the University of Wolverhampton as well the importance of arts graduates to the UK economy.

After lunch students were given an introductory tour of Wolverhampton Art Gallery's current Roy Lichtenstein Artists Rooms exhibition, including a contextual presentation tracing the origin of pop art.
