UWE Drawing Research Symposium 2019

As a newly forming research group, we are holding a number of events to examine and focus our research intentions. Our current membership is an interdisciplinary group from across the Schools of Art and Design, and Film and Journalism at UWE, with a unifying interest in drawing in contemporary arts practice and research. We would like to use this day of discussion to review what drawing is and has been at art school, and what it could and should be in future.
 
The teaching of drawing has changed dramatically at art school over the course of a generation. The way that students are taught drawing today varies from the experience of their tutors. And experiences vary even between different generations of tutors.
 
There is talk of the decline of skills-based teaching and of students setting up their own life drawing classes. But what drawing skills do art students need anyway? What are they drawing for?
 
Drawing has been re-framed since the 1960s, asserting itself as an independent and autonomous practice. Dedicated galleries, BA and MA courses now exist across the country. What does this mean for how drawing is taught now and in the future?

Confirmed speakers include: Chloe Regan, UWE; Andrew Hall, CSM UAL; Paul Fieldsend Danks, Plymouth College of Art; Tania Kovats, Bath Spa University; Howard Riley, Swansea College of Art; Stefan Gant, University of Northampton; Garry Barker, Leeds Arts University; Kelly Chorpening, Camberwell UAL; Simon Packard, Bath Spa University; Lucy Algar, Wimbledon UAL; Sophia Banou, UWE.

'Makers of Tomorrow' Exhibition


I was commissioned, alongside tutors and students from schools and universities, to demonstrate how artists and designers can gain inspiration from the significant collection of 20th and 21st century design at the Ken Stradling. My ‘Antelope Chair’ screenprint was created in response to Ernest Race’s iconic chair.

Reportage Drawing 'Basilicata, Southern Italy, January 2019.'


The shops are shut, businesses close and streets are quiet, respecting the traditions around lunch. Can this way of life be sustained in a global economy?





The beauty of southern Italy, the snowy town of Forenza. Seemingly untouched.
