Book Look Beware!

Fri, 19 January, 2024
10am-4pm (1 hour lunch break)
Location: Studio, 26 Exmouth Market, EC1 4QE 


What is it with 'book looks', 'work scrutinies', assessment and what-not that drives art teachers to distraction? Plus, what's the obsession with 'markmaking' and the 'formal elements'? (Or title pages, research pages, eyeballs, hands, unicorns ..).

What are the foundations for the hindrances and habits of sketchbook working - and what happens when these are playfully and collaboratively dismantled and disrupted?

This experimental CPD workshop is aimed at (but not exclusively for) teachers of art and design at Primary, Secondary or HE level. Participants will come together to draw, collaborate and re-imagine art room antics in practical and profound ways. From amongst the mischief, lesson ideas and new connections will emerge in support of personal and professional creative development.

Chris Francis is an arts educator, illustrator and co-founder of ArtPedagogy and PhotoPedagogy, two popular online resources for artists, educators and students. Chris best summarises his creative practice as ‘serious mischief’ – an ongoing quest to unpick art and art education via thinking hard coupled with less predictable actions and collaborations, be it material-led play, automatic drawings, collaborative interventions, or throwing a timely spanner in the works.
