What is drawing? Fostering experimental working, risk taking and independent learning

2 April 2015 (New College, Nottingham)

Taking drawing and experimentation as a starting point, you will link back to a range of disciplines and delivery opportunities across UAL Awarding Body specifications. The facilitators will encourage you to draw quick responses to conceptual and aesthetic starting points, experimenting and taking notes. You will use your sketchbook to develop work in your own discipline, and discuss how learning can be applied to different teaching contexts and specialisms.

Participants will:

  • experiment with drawing techniques that can be used in any lesson
  • try techniques that encourage editing and risk-taking
  • consider ways to foster quick results and improve confidence
  • review ways of extending students’ skills and problem solving
  • consider how drawing can help students develop their abilities
  • look at ways to use drawing in interdisciplinary work and assessment.

Facilitators

Two highly experienced education and creative professionals will guide these sessions. Participants will be able to draw on expertise about UAL qualifications and delivery, as well as professional and technical skills in creative and experimental drawing.

Equipment and facilities

You will be given drawing materials and equipment as required for this course. It will be run at New College in Nottingham – a well-established creative centre offering a wide range of creative pathways and UAL Awarding Body qualifications.
