Camberwell College of Art BA Drawing course director, Kelly Chorpening, will be presenting at an event at Paris College of Art entitled ‘The Foundation Course in Art and Design: A History Uncovered, A Future Imagined‘. A collaboration between ‘Art School Educated’ (Tate Research) and Paris College of Art.
Paris College of Art will host two events in June exploring the history and future of the Foundation course in Art and Design education:
“A History Uncovered”
June 5th at Tate Britain
This event features a closed, discursive forum with art educators who have helped shape the history of the foundation course since its implementation.
“A Future Imagined”
June 28th and 29th at Paris College of Art
We invite educators, artists, designers, writers, and historians to take part in a two-day event re-imagining the future of foundation teaching. Through practical workshops that include (but are not limited to) drawing, performance, writing, curating, code, collaboration, 3D making and video, we aim to discover new ways of thinking about how we teach.
As part of the event Kelly will run a workshop on Saturday 29 June called ‘Communicating Space’ in which participants will work as a team of curators preparing an imaginary exhibition and will have to send the participating artists a scale drawing that indicates all important features in the exhibition space: dimensions, columns, steps and doorways, plumbing, power sources and light – both artificial and natural.
The participants will not have a camera, or any typical tools of measurement such as rulers, tapes or laser distance measures. Most early measurements related to the body, e.g. the size of a foot, length of a pace. Through consensus, communities agreed on standards. This exercise, through the embodied experience of a space, and collective decision-making, provides an opportunity to engage with drawing and measurement in unexpected ways, through the shared responsibility to communicate information accurately.

With just over a week to go until the White Light | White Heat exhibition opens at the Venice Biennale, here’s a preview of LCF alumni, Taeseok Kang’s work which features in the show.
Taeseok graduated from the MA Fashion Artefact course in 2012 and has since set up his own fashion accessories label and has recently been working for Alberta Ferretti as an accessories designer.
White Light | White Heat is a development of Glasstress, originally conceived in 2009 by Adriano Berengo, President of Berengo Glass Studio and Venice Projects. The latest exhibition is a dramatic expansion of the original Glasstress concept, which launched in 2009, to include London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London and The Wallace Collection working in collaboration with Berengo Glass Studio.
FdA Hair and Make Up for Fashion students have collaborated with hair styling brand, Goldwell, in their annual exploration of the brand’s current Colour Zoom trend.
Students produced videos and shoots capturing their interpretation of this year’s theme, ‘Beautify’, a celebration of the power of style to generate positive thinking.
Made in collaboration with students from LCF’s School of Media and Communications, the productions showcased the artists’ hair and make-up creations.
Each student brought their individual style to their vision of the theme. Split into groups they created six projects: New Masters of Colour, Scarabaidae, Blonde Forever, Morphing Magdalene, Pop Tarts and Berlin 2013, all of which revelled in colour, empowerment and personality.
Goldwell Creative & Technical Director, William Wilson, told students: “What you’ve shown as creative people is that you don’t just turn up to a shoot and make it up – you’ve shown the journey to get there.”
The students’ work is featured on Goldwell’s youtube channel and will be featured as part of Creative Head Magazine’s newly launched app.
The students’ collection can be viewed on Goldwell’s website and will be preserved in the brand’s archive.
