Exchanges 2014

On Saturday 26 April 2014 the Exchanges Project Showcase was held at Pavilion Dance South West . All students shared their observations and opinions about the sculptures they saw on research days to the New Art Centre through new student-led performances and discussion at the showcase event. In 2014 we worked with students from Highcliffe School, The Bourne Academy and Winchester University. Exchanges is an on-going programme of opportunities to explore dialogue between visual art and performance.  To learn more about the project see here.

Teachers Special Preview and open Evening

A Teachers special preview and open evening was held in February.  Teachers enjoyed a preview of the current exhibition by David Batchelor, with an introductory tour of the exhibition by the New Art Centre curator Stephen Feeke.  Teachers used the current exhibition to discuss the topic ‘The Art of Asking Questions’. There was time to  share experiences, network and consider ideas on how to best support their students when talking about art.

The next Teachers Evening will be held on Tuesday 10 June 2014.  Further information in upcoming events.
