THAT network are pleased to announce the venue and date of our next network meeting at Central Foundation Girls School (Art dept) on Tuesday the 4th November 2014.
Nearly a year after the network was launched, THAT network meetings have been hosted at venues across the borough and members have enjoyed workshops, talks and tours of Tower Hamlets art departments. Our special thanks to St Pauls Way for their fantastic CPD sessions on analogue photography and printmaking, and to Morpeth for the inspirational talk about the crossovers between two huge cultures – that of Art and of Education.
Mid-way through the autumn term CFGS has kindly offered to host the next meeting which will involve time for teachers to input their views and ideas on what they need from THAT next. Adrian Pitt from Greenwich Free School will be offering his own computerless photoshop lesson and members of CFGS team will offer a further workshop on 3D practice. We ask that where possible THAT members bring samples of their AS and A2 level work so we can moderate for ourselves and gain a better understanding of the new A level standards and marking criteria. If you have successful SOW or resources please bring and share either in person or via the dropbox account.
In addition to this teachers in the network will have the opportunity to sign up for further specialised CPD sessions run by local artists in disciplines such as painting, ceramics, printmaking and digital media. With the support of the Sinnott Fellowship network members will be able to access in depth training for free, which they can disseminate to colleagues and into their curriculum.
Finally we will be discussing opportunities for a showcase exhibition in the spring term.
We hope to see you there, please do RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are planning to attend so we can make refreshment provisions!
In the meantime check out the Tate website for the opportunity for more FREE workshops for schools and their students In Tower Hamlets and Southwark coming up in the autumn term.And follow us on twitter for more opportunities like these as they hit our inbox: @ThatnetworkLDN
