Folkestone Triennial ARTiculation Discovery Day
The Folkestone Triennial Discovery Day invited students to explore selected works displayed as part of “Lookout”, the 2014 exhibition curated by Lewis Biggs. This was achieved through personal observation, research and analysis, and participants were asked to deliver group presentations at the end of the day.The event was held at Quarterhouse, the arts venue at the centre of Folkestone’s Creative Quarter.
The day was also attended by Molly Nickson, winner of ARTiculation 2013, and by professionals from the University of Kent who gave students advice and information about their portfolios and interviews throughout the course of the day. Staff and professionals were also on hand to offer guidance on preparing a presentation, focusing on content, structure, and delivery.
This autumn ARTiculation will embark on a new programme – “Crit Sessions” – which will offer an introduction to critical visual analysis for sixth formers. The sessions will be led by professional organisations including Q-Art, which is run by art students and graduates for the benefit of students interested in learning more about art education. Folkestone Quarterhouse will host one of the first sessions on 20 October. For further details see http://rochecourteducationaltrust.co.uk/articulation-prize/articulation-news-2/
