What? One- and two-day workshops in skills training
The one- and two-day workshops in contemporary art practice entail a specialist training programme consisting of workshops and visual presentations. Specific objectives are to improve technical competence; to gain theoretical and technical knowledge and insight; to develop critical reflection ability and resourcing methodologies; and to understand idea development processes.
The certificate course is a six-month course consisting of 8 modules in art practice, theory and history.
How? Critical and creative thinking development
The workshops consist of theoretical discussions; concept, creative and critical thinking development; training in digital and technical skills; and critical assessment. During each workshop a topic relevant to art production, art exhibition, art marketing or art writing is theorised and discussed. Each participant receives individual attention as well as learn through observing the development of the work of others and the discussion thereof.
