Four: Drawing Two
07 – 27 December 2015
organized by studioELL
galleryELL is proud to host this inaugural studioELL exhibition presenting the pilot online Drawing Two course offered this term.
studioELL is galleryELL’s space for studios, residencies and courses. studioELL officially launched in Summer 2015. This Drawing Two online pilot program was initiated, in part, because the students and professor worked together in a physical Drawing 1 course. This relationship allowed them to create individual and group rapports and establish a culture of higher learning. This experience, and the desire to continue working together, was the impetus for developing this online studio course. A new lesson was presented each week. After completion, the students presented their work and discussed the work of their fellow students in the virtual classroom. The group also met physically in London during the middle of the course. Group and one-on-one discussions where exchanged with the professor each week.
studioELL is testing possible models at which effective learning in fine art can be executed. This course along with future pilot courses will help create models from which to form a wider studio program, both digitally and physically. This way of working maintains studioELL’s identity as a hybrid, transient entity, continually evolving and adapting to best fit the current needs of the times.
like galleryELL, studioELL is not-for-profit. Though we do not have official 501c3 status all revenue goes directly back into funding future projects. Though we will pay professors in the future, all revenue for this course went to fund the start up platform. We are proud to be artist-run and artist-funded. Donations are graciously accepted.
