What is a ‘Virtual Study Visit’?
The Open College of Arts has decided to pilot our very first ‘virtual study visit’. Whilst we will continue to programme physical study visits as per the existing model, the need has been identified for resources which broaden access, especially for those in rural areas or abroad, to contemporary dialogues and scholarship in visual art, galleries, museums and collections.

What is the purpose?
To help you discover new artists and new ways of looking at and thinking about art. Exhibitions often accompany research, interviews, events on the subjects or artists involved, making them great resources for you. OCA Study Visits encourage students to routinely use exhibitions, galleries and museums to aid your learning and artistic development and provide the opportunity to reflect on materials in an open and supportive peer-led environment

How long can I make use of the materials and physical exhibition?
It is important to carry out any personal research and reflection before the date of the VCrit you are booking onto. For those who are able to visit, either independently or as a self-directed group, this is highly recommended. Both of these exhibitions close on 07 October 2018. 

What happens next?
Book on to a VCrit – a google hangout session with the study visit leader (one of OCA’s existing tutors) and fellow students to share your experience of the artists and works featured in the exhibition/s. Help us shape future Virtual Study Visits by sending your feedback to Joanne Mulvihill-Allen on joannemulvihill-allen@oca.ac.uk

Request the resource pack by emailing Joanne or find it on the OCA discuss forum here.
