Ruth Catlow and Michael Szpakowski write here as teachers in the Art and Design degrees at Writtle School of Design. They speak passionately about the role of drawing in what it is to be human. There is, they say, "no known human culture that has not made representational and other marks with something, on something, for both fun and survival". They assert the value of drawing studies and advocate a model for education based on peer-learning where teachers and students engage side by side in a process of exchange.
For Crossing Into Yesterday, Olga P Massanet (Furtherfield) developed – together with Phoebe Osborne (music trainee, Drake Music) and 30 year five children – an audio visual installation. Using a range of different media, participants translated old photographs of children from the Ragged Schools into a constellation of smells, sounds and drawings.
Featuring: Class Wargames, Kimathi Donkor, Laura Oldfield Ford, The Hexists, IOCOSE, Dave Miller, Edward Picot, Olga P Massanet and Thomas Cade Aston, and YoHa.
Our social, economic and cultural institutions are being dismantled. Control over the provision of social care, urban and rural development, education and freedom of expression, is being redistributed to private enterprise at a global level. Undeterred artist-visionaries respond to these invisible forces with clear eyes, spontaneity, experimentation, play and a sense of adventure. The resulting mix of installations, digital video, net art, painting and drawings deal with conspiracy, money, politics, hidden signals and frustration fatigue.

Landscape drawings, photographs and video made in the New Forest, UK. "I incorporated the process of drawing - which it turns out is a conversation between eye, hand, playfulness, imagination, ego, memories, theories and stories of other scenes, natural and created (drawn, painted, photographed), along with the material stuff of the landscape itself- extending drawing into action, arrangement, evocation and performance."
