BURSARY AWARDS FOR ART STUDENTS
DARTMOOR ARTS PROJECT SUMMER SCHOOL

Dartmoor Arts Project has a number of bursaries to award to art students from all disciplines and student architects to participate in our summer school this July. The school brings together over 100 student & professional artists, architects and makers for a brilliant week of in-depth creative practice plus a programme of talks by leading contemporary artists. Students get to work alongside and be taught and mentored by professional artists and can choose from ten courses which run throughout the summer school week. This year students get to work with a team of contemporary artists including SUSAN DERGES, PAUL GRANJON, CLAUDE HEATH, CHRYSTEL LEBAS, SIAN BONNELL, JEM SOUTHAM, CHRIS COOK, LIZ NICOL, ANDY GRIFFITHS, PAUL THOMAS, co-founder of the Jerwood Drawing Prize, KIP GRESHAM from The Print Studio Cambridge, architect JERRY TATE & CHARLEY BRENTNALL who has been leading projects at the AA’s Hooke Park.
Dartmoor Arts Project is an artist run organisation funded by Arts Council England. Our aim is to support artists at the beginning of their careers and open up opportunities for them to work and discuss ideas with established artists. The summer school is intimate in scale and this means there are plenty of opportunities for students to meet and have conversations with leading contemporary artists as well as have a dedicated period of time to develop their own practice. We are able to offer large studio spaces to realise ambitious project ideas and access to disciplines such as iron casting & stone carving. We also have a fantastic new course ROBOTIC DRAWING MACHINES where students can work with Paul Granjon to build and programme their own drawing robot. Over the last few years we have had an excellent evening programme with talks by Laura Ford, Phoebe Unwin, Karolina Glusiec, Harrison & Wood, Susan Derges, Paul Granjon, Conrad Shawcross, Richard Wilson, Antony Gormley, David Nash. A full list of participating artists & tutors is on our website.
