Description: 

Part of Engage Scotland's sharing practice events across February and March 2021.

Overview

In collaboration with three freelance artist educators based in Scotland, Engage Scotland is offering sharing practice sessions aimed at gallery educators, artist educators and art and design teachers, during February and March.

These online sessions, delivered via Zoom, have been designed to support, refresh and reinvigorate your creative learning practice during lockdown.

When planning these sessions towards the end of 2020, and even before the introduction of the latest lockdown, we were mindful of just how hard teachers, artists and gallery educators have been working to create fun, interactive ways of delivering great creative learning opportunities in less than optimal conditions. We wanted to create space for three artist educators, who work in a range of settings, to share some of the ways that they have addressed the challenges of the last few months.

We’re doing that in two ways; first with a sharing practice session delivered via Zoom and then as a follow up, with a block of 4 Creative Reboot sessions, also delivered via Zoom.

The artists have put together this video to give context to these sessions:

Event description and booking details

Creative Reboot - 4 week series

Dates: Fridays from 5-6pm, 19 February, 26 February, 5 March 12 March

As a follow up to our sharing practice session on 11 February, we’re going to bring together a smaller group of people to get creative, make art and learn by doing, again via Zoom.

We know that many galleries and arts organisations have been distributing creative resources and delivering online creative workshops during periods of closure.

By attending our Creative Reboot you will experience this blended approach to creative learning, as a participant. These workshops will offer opportunities for interaction and making, with creative resource packs being sent out to participants in advance.

Artists, Lou, Heather and Sam, will each lead a creative workshop before coming together for a final workshop focusing on creative ways of evaluation.

 

The artists’ workshops will cover:

Lou - Studio folders for a diverse making experience using Zoom as an interactive space.

Heather - Turning 2D into 3D: using ordinary materials, grow your own ideas and creative experiments to share with others.

Sam – Alternative art materials, using everyday objects to make a statement, including a short introductory film focusing on a virtual art club in West Lothian with the theme Art as protest

 

Fees:

  • Engage member freelancer £30
  • Non-member freelancer £40
  • Engage member organisation £60
  • Non-member organisation £80

 

Booking

Numbers at the Creative Reboot are limited to just 10 so please book early to secure your place. Places are limited to a maximum of two people from the same organisation.

Please note that postal addresses are required when booking so that resource packs can be sent to you.

Deadline for booking for these events is Wednesday 10 February 2021.

 

Artists’ biographies

Heather Lucchesi

Heather Lucchesi founded the social enterprise company Light Bulb Arts in Edinburgh in 2015 to explore the health and wellbeing benefits of taking part in creative art activities.

She sees visual art as a powerful form of communication, accessible for all ages and stages, and arguably more important now than ever.

With a background in textile design, art and design teaching (specialising in additional support needs for 10 years), gallery education and projects with carers and mental health charities, Heather continues to adapt to changing ways of working. Her first Zoom class started in March 2020 and is still going strong.

More than 30 years after graduating from Grays School of Art in Aberdeen, she remains enthusiastic, continues to learn and loves to collect and share ideas.

 

Sam Rutherford

Sam Rutherford is a digital artist specialising in community art projects. She has over 20 years of experience as a freelance art educator working at the National Galleries of Scotland with a variety of groups.

She has a passion for using the visual arts as a means for people to have their voice heard and has recently worked with young people and a homeless charity to explore different ways of doing this.

 

Louise K Fraser

Louise Fraser has been working as a teaching artist for 15 years. Her time is balanced between creating her own artwork from her Leith studio and her education practice.

Her practice is diverse and stems from her BA and MFA studies in Tapestry at Edinburgh College of Art which gave her multi-disciplinary view to creating art.

Since then she has been developing and expanding her knowledge and experience as a teaching artist, through formal and informal training.

Lou has undertaken numerous residencies, set up her own consultancy Lou. Kin Art. She has initiated and hosted a lockdown educator support collective, mentored young artists, and worked with Galleries and Councils across Scotland.

What drives her is the concept that learning opens the possibility of ART to everyone.

TODA LA INFORMACIÓN >>>>

Este curso de performance se enfoca en la re-politización de nuestrxs cuerpxs a través de un empoderamiento holístico de nuestro Ser en el mundo. A través de ejercicios específicos de autoconocimiento e intuición individual-comunal, trabajaremos estados alterados del ser que develarán la política de lxs cuerpxs dentro de una comunidad efímera. Dentro de esta investigación continua se crearán acciones individuales y colectivas en espacios públicos e íntimos. Al final del curso lxs participantes tendrán conocimiento sobre distintas teorías políticas de lxs cuerpxs desde donde accionar y habrán generado las herramientas para desarrollar intervenciones de performance en distintos espacios.
Durante el curso compartiremos lo que definimos como AmOr Subversivo x Cuidados eXtremos. Desde una visión descolonial se trabajarán otros modelos de relación (entre humanos, el espacio, el tiempo, la naturaleza y los objetos). En esta práctica buscamos la recuperación de saberes de la cuerpa que han sido silenciados u oprimidos, ante la fuerza de un capitalismo salvaje y colonial que fabrica el cuerpo del trabajador-consumidor. Nos enfocamos en la magia cotidiana y la energía existente en nuestras corporalidades. La relación con la materia, con el espacio y con lxs demás se desarrolla como diálogo horizontal a través de un proceso de hipersensibilidad y escucha extrema. El re-aprender esta manera de vivir, crear y relacionarnos como acto político es el inicial enfoque de este curso. Desde la realidad ritual del tiempo-espacio-cuerpx se explora la potencialidad de las acciones y sus efectos (físicos, psíquicos, energéticos, sociales) en lxs que accionan y en sus alrededores. Se estudian los condicionamientos sociales (género, raza, clase, etc.) que habitan nuestrxs cuerpxs para trabajar a partir de éstxs la performatividad.
Los conceptos y teorías políticas de lxs cuerpxs a ser exploradas serán tanto discutidas con textos y obras de artistas, como vivenciadas a través de lxs cuerpxs de lxs participantes mediante los ejercicios propuestos. El curso desarrolla exploraciones corposensoriales a través de ejercicios e intervenciones en espacios públicos y privados. Se trabajará tanto de manera individual como de manera colectiva, cuestionando y repensando ambos términos. Se desarrollará un proyecto performático continuo desde la exploración corposensorial de cada individuo y la comunidad creada en el curso.

Dirigido a todas aquellas personas mayores de edad interesadas en el arte de la performance o arte de acción
