Within term 2 a mentor will assist in developing an independent project to be carried out the following term in a bespoke setting.

The mentored independent project will also take place this term should learners be able to allocate three days to their schedule.

Term 4

This may take the form of a lesson demonstration with commentary, projected instillation, conference report etc. Within this term master classes will also occur which will be based on fundraising as an independent artist.
