OCA tutor Andrew Conroy will be leading the OCA-North group’s first get together on the 2 June in Leeds at the Old Red Bus Station.
Our practical session was centred on ideas generation and how to generate multiple visual experiments from a single starting point. Taking a crumpled piece of A4 paper as our subject, we first drew its form, then experimented with scale and composition.

I began the morning asking students what they thought drawing could be beyond the traditional skills they might have learnt. Some keywords emerged that acted as a guide for the exercises, including drawing as invention, play, process, action, memory, language, non-art, materials and generative.
Join OCA tutor Polly Harvey on Saturday 19 May in Bordon, Hampshire.
There are many challenges for students to overcome through distance learning; engaging with other likeminded students to create your own peer network has to be one of the trickiest. I believe that if students can find the time, the use of OCASA funded workshops has to be a tangible benefit to a student’s learning across all programmes.
Following a review earlier this year it was agreed the funds provided to OCASA would be substantially increased to encourage both a wider distribution of funds to students and to encourage a diversification in the types of activities available to students.
These are exciting times for the OCA and being part of the OCA Student Association Committee (OCASA) puts you in a position to influence the way students can experience their studies with the college for the better. If you have the time, interest and drive you can make a real difference to the way the college works and the way a student experiences their studies.
