Drawing on the talents and expertise of various professionals, The Art Room wants to positively contribute to the development of emerging artists by offering this series of workshops.
Our next session is:
REFLECTING ON PRACTICE
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.
Yvette Grant is the current skills adviser in The Faculty of Fine Arts and Music, at The University of Melbourne. In this session, she 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.
Saturday 6th April
1 – 3pm
PLACES ARE LIMITED
Collaborating is not an easy task for some artists who find it difficult to separate themselves from their own work. Working with others is almost always harder than working alone.
After ten years of trying to collaborate together Louise Blyton and Cat Poljski have finally worked out how to do it successfully! They’ve learned that the exchange of ideas and the experimental process are key components in collaboration. And that no matter what the circumstances, collaborations can unlock untold creative riches. As one engages with the other’s imagination, the process unfolds.
In this workshop Louise and Cat will be sharing what they have learned from their previous unsuccessful collaboration attempts and how they worked together to exhibit their collaborative pieces this year.
OTHER IMPORTANT TOPICS WE’LL BE COVERING IN UPCOMING WORKSHOPS:
– Taxation for artists
– Artist websites
We’d also love to hear from YOU! What do you want to learn more about? Please send us your ideas and we’ll find the perfect artists with expertise in these areas to host the workshops.
