Out of Boundaries: Collectively making learning spaces using drawing and stitching

Symposium – Published 9th Sep 16

Presented at the first Arts University Bournemouth Creative Learning Symposium in 2016, this talk explored and compared ‘people-oriented’ collective making practices that question the emphasis on individuality currently prized in ‘object-oriented’ art and design education.

Drawing on new research conducted as part of an AUB Research Fellowship award in 2015, close observation of the rhythms and patterns of mark-making in collective drawing exercises raises questions concerning the ways drawing collectively could explore the sometimes inarticulate boundaries between individuals. It also provokes questions about the value and place of learning through non-assessed group activity outside the boundaries of curriculum.
