NAFAE offers a forum for the concerns and interests of Fine Art educators to be disseminated and heard.
As universities and FE institutions face the challenges of a significant reduction in government funding, together with rising tuition fees, the need to represent the collective voice of the sector is as crucial as it has ever been.
The Association AGM and annual Symposium was held at the October Gallery in London last Friday. The symposium consisted of 8 presentations, which considered challenges to, and ways of challenging Fine Art pedagogies.
Themes included new approaches to teaching, particularly the use of social networking and blogs to build community and confidence amongst students, future learning in Fine Art and the importance of the live brief, changing working practices and the impact upon the discipline of the use of metrics and targets.
NAFAE are conducting a brief survey to gain a better understanding of the contemporary studio. They want students to submit a short visual essay of one to three images in response to the site or sites for making.
NAFAE want to collect student responses in time for this year’s National Association for Fine Art Education London seminar so that they can present a broad picture of the diversity of practice across a range of Visual and Fine Art courses.
