Chelsea College of Arts Dubai host a portfolio of Art, Interior Design and Decoration Short Courses

Chelsea College of Arts (CCA), arrives back in Dubai in February 2015, to host another portfolio of high-quality Contemporary Art and Interior Design short courses. London-based tutors, all of whom are practicing industry professionals, will be teaching these courses.

CCA invites aspiring and practicing interior designers to join a range of courses, relevant for those looking to develop specialist skills, or beginners wishing to pursue their passion for interiors. Each course offers a tremendous opportunity to expand on skills in guided, practical classes.

This will be the 11th time that CCA, with its eminent reputation as a centre of excellence for short course provisions, visits Dubai.

This session will include a new course, Contemporary Art Explored, as well as some returning courses listed below:
• The Principles of Interior Design – One (5 Days)
• The Principles of Interior Design – Two (5 Days)
• The Principles of Interior Design – Three (6 Days)
• Colour for Interiors – (1 Day)
• NEW COURSE – Contemporary Art Explored (2 Days)
• Curating Contemporary Art (3 Days)

With a strong reputation for short courses in the arts in London, Chelsea College of Arts have designed two courses focussing on Contemporary Art and Curating for Dubai. These courses explore the world of contemporary art and its position in the international art scene.

Returning for a second time to Dubai, Curating Contemporary Art is a three-day course that aims to define the importance of a curator, whilst introducing students to the practical aspects of engaging with artists. Contemporary Art Explored is a brand new course to be offered to Dubai students and will outline historical milestones in the field, with a focus on the evolution of artistic styles and movements through the 20th century while also touching upon the critical appreciation of art.

Some of the methods that will be used in teaching these courses include gallery tours, group discussion, exhibition curation, classroom-based lectures and presentations. Students may consider undertaking the two-day Contemporary Art Explored course as a perfect foundation in preparation for the Curating Contemporary Art course.

CCA is a part of the University of the Arts London, Europe’s largest specialist arts and design university. This includes a number of renowned alumni including Alexander McQueen, Anish Kapoor, Mojeb Al-Dousari and Florence Welch.
