Exploring our local buildings, communities and spaces through drawing, photography and curation.
In 2018 The Courtauld closed because of a major renovation to the building. Without the Gallery we decided to focus our attention closer to home by exploring our local buildings, communities and spaces. The legacy of these workshops and projects has now been compiled in an easy to use and multi-layered learning resource. At this event Francesca Herrick will introduce teachers to some of the key activities in this resource, including using Archives, Architectural Photography and Curation. In addition, artist Alexandra Blum will discuss her approach to drawing, focussing on the ways in which close observation of the relationships between forms encourages both in-depth interaction with architecture and the visualisation of journeys through wider urban spaces. This content will be positioned in relation to real life examples of working with students and young people.
Event themes include:
Observation Drawing – architecture and urban space
All the activities in this event and the associated learning resource are suitable for learning in the classroom and can also be used by students independently at home.
