On a very busy Saturday in Cambridge five students and I visited several locations to see work in a variety of contexts.
I decided to be a night owl, because a lot of the time I’m on my phone when the football’s on and it’s just something else to do while my partner is watching that. I thought if I put that away then I could do something else more productive. I thought I’d be good at it!
You will each have your own places that give you happy memories. We want to tap into that potential within each of us by providing opportunities to engage in design practice and to learn design through new programmes at the Open College of the Arts. I’m very excited to announce that the first of these is now ready – we have a foundation in Interior Design which you can sign up for from today.
It was my birthday so I was looking forward to getting all of my happy birthday messages as nobody posts cards anymore – I can’t have a birthday without Facebook! I haven’t looked at it though.
Join OCA’s Helen Warburton in Cardiff on the 27 October.
As a group we decided it would be a good idea to do something over the summer to stay in touch with each other. We wanted to participate in a project together that befitted how we communicate as a distance learning group of individuals, all living in different parts of the world, digitally connected.
To be a student is innately to find out more about a subject. To explore and investigate, to delve deeper and make connections between seemingly unrelated sources.
At OCA, our revamped mission is to introduce student-led activities to our operations and learning models. Integral to this is to give you, our students, a greater voice in decision making processes that affect you. This academic year we are introducing two new surveys that form an integral element of our academic monitoring processes; the Unit Evaluation Survey, and the Level Analysis Survey.
I’m not sure I’m ready for cold turkey, I have a 17 month old daughter that likes Peppa Pig and Baby Shark so often social media during the day is necessary for my sanity! Also I think the majority of my use is usually after 6pm.
This post is for all students interested in climate change, activism, art & ecology and reports back on a panel discussion on Art & Ecology organised by London Creative Network (LCN) and held at Space in London.
This virtual study visit has been designed by way of a resource pack to give students adequate resources to either attend the exhibition physically or complete research online to then partake in an online discussion. This is a pilot initiative so please do sign up and give it a go!
Join OCA tutor Jayne Taylor on Sunday 21 October for a thought-provoking visit to the annual Koestler Trust exhibition at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
