Each event in our Art in Focus series offers an opportunity for an hour of close looking and informal discussion around a single work of art, led by Curator of Education Michelle DiMarzo. On December 14, we'll be looking together at this portrait of an unidentified youth by the Swedish-Dutch painter Martin van Meytens II, who became a fixture at the imperial court in Vienna after 1730, painting many members of the aristocratic elite. Join us for the opportunity to engage deeply with this work of art in a relaxed atmosphere. Reserve your seat now! Image: Detail from Anonymous painter, after Raphael, Transfiguration, 19th century.

A talk and presentation by artist Laurence Rushby who is currently undertaking a PhD research study  to investigate how we may ' redefine live art as a pedagogy, and in what way its fluidity and autonomy might  be valuable for young people’s creative development'. In the context of CAS collaborative research on 'Dissent', Laurence is investigating the 'Pedagogies of Dissent',and how a critical approach within education is an essantial tool for learning. If you have interest in art and education, this event will provide a platform for discussions, reflections and perhaps new directions in which your practice may develop. The presentation will give an overview of the research to date and a taster of what might happen in a residency in secondary school as part of her action research methodology. About the Location Laurence is a CAS Associate Artist. The event will be held at at CAS Chapel Studio in Andover. Click here for illustrated directions Please register to confirm your attendance. If you have any questions Laurence can be contacted by email [email protected] Background Laurence's research aims to investigate the ways in which a live-art practice  may be considered as a pedagogic experience. It may reveal new understandings of the potential role of live-art in secondary education. It will be underpinned by a constructivist epistemology, and will investigate past and contemporary live-art practices.  She will take a qualitative approach, using elements of auto-ethnography, ethnography and action research methodologies to include interviews, a validation group and participants. A residency in secondary school, will involve students in live art activities and discussions. She will invite artists to become part of a critical validation group to reflect on the development of the residency.
