Reflecting on your practice

REFLECTING ON PRACTICE is a new workshop hosted by Yvette Grant as part of our WHAT I WISH I LEARNED AT ART SCHOOL series.

How we think about our practice changes it and often our reflection on practice can be intuitive, instinctual or automatic. In order to deepen this reflection, we can use tools to push dead-ends, reveal what’s underneath and question the habitual.  In this session, Yvette will take you through two methods of reflecting on practice: firstly, reflecting through writing using the approaches of Jenny Moon; and secondly, reflecting through the practice of a philosopher’s walk.

Places are limited to 30 attendees, book your place HERE!

Curious Cabinets

Megan Evans’ exhibition ‘Curious Cabinets’ opens TONIGHT at Loop bar 6-8pm!

Don’t forget to come along to Megan’s exciting ARTIST PATHS workshop at The Art Room this Saturday too!

An Artist’s Path

The next workshop in the WHAT I WISH I LEARNED AT ART SCHOOL series is ARTIST PATHS with artist Megan Evans!

Artist Paths is a conversation in which artists are invited to look at their career from the end of their life, which is hopefully long and fruitful.

They are then asked if they achieved EVERYTHING they could possibly want and are fulfilled and happy with their life as an artist, what would they have achieved. They then look back from there and design a strategy for getting there. This is after a cold hard look at the design of the art world loosely constructed as the Art World Pyramid.  This conversation is designed to be both exciting and inspiring AND grounded in reality.

Megan Evans has a 34 year career as an artist and most of what she will share is from her mistakes and also her experience of the international art world through her family connection with well known artist William Kentridge.

The workshop is on Saturday 7th October 1-3pm, places are limited, please reserve your seat HERE.
