Workshop: Book Look Beware
with Eye to Pencil
Part of Workshops
Eye to Pencil Studio
Join Artpedagogy’s Chris Francis for a day of creative professional development to draw, collaborate and re-imagine art room antics in practical and profound ways.
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.

potential drawing has as a medium.
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.Website: www.artpedagogy.comInstagram: @artpedagogy
