OCA North event: Thinking through art – a workshop
The title of this workshop is taken from a book edited by Kate Macleod and Lin Holdridge about the relationship between art and thought.
The first section will deal with the basics of contextual research. This is just a chance to hear some strategies for embarking on a research topic, of finding resources and then utilising them to develop your opinion and understanding.
The second section will deal with research through materials and to give you space to decide for yourselves whether you think art is a form of research. Again, we will look at strategies for materials research and art as research.
For each section it would be really useful to be able to work from examples of your own projects so please do bring your own work. We will look at some people’s work as case studies, but also have a chance to develop your own resources so that you can use them in your work.
Join OCA tutor and Programme Leader Emma Drye in Halifax on the 30 March.
This event is open to all students. If you are interested in attending please complete the booking form here.
