Mentoring Programme


John Busher will deliver a 6-month mentoring programme through a number of on-site tutorials, written critique, and practical demonstrations. The programme is grounded mostly in the practice of drawing, painting, and print. Participants receive informal critical feedback following initial tutorials that are delivered at 3-month intervals. Practical demonstrations will support issues or concerns that are reflected in the written assessment. The aim of this is to experiment in a proactive way and facilitate a range of approaches in response to the material, technique, and concepts within the work.

The 24-week programme is designed to activate critical thinking and self-reflection while encouraging deeper engagement with art making. Guidance in the historical framework of a chosen practice will be supported in a contemporary context. It is believed that this will bring relevance to the work by providing both intellectual and creative development. Time between tutorials allows participants to take ownership of the creative process while finding an individual approach to creative expression. Effective mentoring means touching base with participants midway through tutorials in a practical way through demonstration. These intensive workshops are designed to invigorate the participants approach to materials and re-evaluate the art-making process.
