Join educator Caroline King on this tour to explore her selection of this year’s Summer Exhibition.

Caroline King is the Foundation Art & Design course co-ordinator at Richmond-upon-Thames College, which is a large tertiary college based in Twickenham. The students come from a wide range of boroughs and backgrounds resulting in a diverse and dynamic learning community. Caroline is motivated by the ways in which arts education can develop creative practical and conceptual skills, alongside nurturing a person’s confidence and ambition.

“Teaching vocational Art & Design within Further Education is extremely rewarding. It enables you to work with students who are excited by, and open to, the wonders of the creative world and are establishing the creative path they wish to take.”

Caroline is a member of the six-strong RA Further Education Advisory Group, who meet with the Learning Department regularly to guide the development of the FE students offer.

As a fine artist Caroline’s influences are diverse, as are the ways she create artworks. Politics, advertising, news media, religion, activism and selfie culture are all points of reference, particularly for the shared strategies they use to communicate their agendas within our physical and virtual worlds. King uses a range of visual language and media to create multiples, series and assemblages; the world is fragmentary and repetitious and the work intentionally reflects this.

This event has limited capacity, headsets for the tour will be distributed on a first come first served basis.
