October 18th, Seminar: Inside the Jury. Walter Quan

On Oct.18, VCA had the pleasure of hosting a BC arts Council grant application seminar, “Inside the Jury” conducted by Walter Quan, 20 year veteran program officer. Besides being larded with valuable insights and information, the 30 attendees were broken into small groups and treated to a simulated Jury experience, applying the arts council criteria to judging actual past applications on their eligibility and merits. Response was more than enthusiastic. That Walter would generously give up a whole Saturday to making the arts grant process so transparent and accessible was universally applauded by the entire creative community present.

Nov. 5, Workshop: Drawing In The Expanded Field

Jack Southern, course leader for the BA Fine Art course at the University of Gloucestershire, UK, will be giving a free workshop: “Drawing In The Expanded Field” on Nov.5 from 10.00am to 12.00 in VCA’s Drafting Room. In the afternoon, he will be advising VCA students on details of transfer arrangements into degree programmes at Gloucestershire University.

As well as teaching in Fine Art and Visual Arts, Jack’s creative work also includes research, curatorial practice, and writing. Previously co-author of “The Guardian Drawing Guide”, his latest book, Drawing Projects, co-authored with Mick Maslen, re-establishes and enlarges the importance of drawing as a process of discovery and perception – a sixth sense to further enable the creative spirit.
