Sleeveface photography competition
The phenomenon, simply but effectively, called ‘Sleeveface’ is described as ‘one or more persons obscuring or augmenting any part of their body or bodies with record sleeve(s) causing an illusion.’ Pictures definitely speak louder than words in this case!
This is where you, theSprout reader comes in. We’re setting up our own Sleeveface competition, judged by The Celtic Learners Network. We want you to create your own Sleevefaces. Props and outfits are actively encouraged, the more experimental the better. The prize is a Sleeveface workshop by The Celtic Learners Network at the Cardiff Arts Institute, which will be occurring on Saturday 16th October from 10:30am – 12:30pm. Remember, the quality of the picture doesn’t matter at all so use any old camera to take it (even your mobile camera).
The competition closes Thursday 30th September, giving you a month to send us your entries (multiple entries are allowed). To enter, e-mail your sleeveface entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Grab your mates and organise your own Sleeveface party. You're going to be judged on how much you make us laugh so you might as well make yourselves laugh in the process!

Our website is now updated with all our new courses for the Spring term, both in Cardiff and the VoG. Highlights of this term include an investigation into the minds of the world's most notorious serial killers, to more traditional favourites such as Norse Mythology, Welsh Epic Literature and Renaissance Portraiture. The range of subjects for next term has also expanded to encompass areas such as future ethics, exploring the morality of GM Food, and a dive into the debate between science and religion with the history behind the theory of evolution. Students should find something of interest whether they are looking for Creative Writing, Art, Photography, Drama, Literature or Mythology.
We are very excited to add some fantastic venues to our list. In Cardiff you will find us at St David's Hall and Chapter, but we are also branching out into Llantwit Major as well as remaining at Barry Library.
We are offering 10% off course enrolments that are made before Christmas. Even better, if you pop into our open day at St David's Hall on the 11th Dec you will receive 15% off!

Tutors: Liz McKernan
Saturday 30th June
10:30am - 2:30pm
Unravelling Contemporary Art
An in-depth look at some of the key themes and issues in Contemporary Art, relating to the new displays at the National Museum. In particular, we will look at issues such as national identity and gender, whilst looking at works exhibited by artists such as Ivor Davies, Peter Finnemore and Tim Davies. We will also take a look at the forthcoming Artes Mundi exhibitors.
Tutor: Mair Jones
Tues 3rd July
2:00pm - 4:00pm
3 weekly classes
Art and Propaganda
In this lecture we will be examining the role of art and artists in the composition of propaganda. From its inception during the Roman Empire, through the medieval ages and into the French Revolution and beyond, governments have used art to indoctrinate populations and further their own ideologies and agendas. Some underground movements appeared in the 20th century as a response to the rigid criteria of 'Socialist Realism' and we will be covering these in detail and how they may lift up the curtain of state-approved works by offering the closest thing to the true state of affairs.
Tutor: Chris Owen
Saturday 14th July
10.30am to 2.30pm
An Introduction to the Pre-Raphaelites
In this introduction we will look at who formed the brotherhood and study some of the works they produced; including works by Rosetti, Millais and Burn-Jones on display in the National Museum.
Tutor: Tracy McFarland
Saturday 28th July
10.30am to 2.30pm
