ARTiculation workshops have been designed to stimulate students’ interest and understanding of art while developing observation, research, critical analysis, language, presentation and public speaking skills. Led by art experts, students are encouraged to think independently, ask informed questions and analyse information.

 

ARTiculation Discovery Days

The ARTiculation Discovery Day is a workshop open to Key Stage 4 and 5 students designed to develop and support students’ understanding and engagement with art.  During the workshops students will explore art works through personal observation, discussion and research and will be introduced to tips on how to conquer nerves, physically prepare, and successfully deliver a presentation to large audiences. At the end of the day each student will deliver their research and personal responses in short group presentations to the workshop leaders and their fellow student investigators.

As part of the ARTiculation outreach, the Discovery Days are open to all students from state-maintained schools.

 

ARTiculation ‘Crit’ Sessions

The ARTiculation ‘Crit’ Sessions are open to all sixth form students aged 16 to 19 and are designed to give an introduction to critical visual analysis, based in the art school ‘Crit’ model. The sessions develop key visual and critical analysis skills and are led by professional organisations including Q-Art.

 

The following workshops are available to book for 2016/2017. Further workshops will be announced during July and August.

There will be a small exhibition of work by students, alumni and staff (all acclaimed internationally practicing artists) as a focal point for discussions, and a site specific work on one of the amazing Dockyard ships. 6th form pupils will get the chance to observe an undergraduate group Crit to learn and discover processes involved in speaking about an artwork.
