Viewpoints 2020 — Studio

With students poised to return to college in the coming weeks we pick up on points raised in the last Viewpoints series around adapting to new realities, working from home and considering whether a physical studio space is necessary at all. We will hear from three art and design practitioners/educators on their thoughts on the studio as a space to think, work and learn. First up is artist and educator Mary A Fitzgerald who tells us about being exiled from the normal working experience, working from her kitchen table and making it work for her. Chloe Brennan talks about the need for creativity and supports for art and design practice in these challenging times and hot on the heels of the wonderful ‘Chit Chat's’, Bob Gray lets us in on a conversation discussing the merits of the studio and the fundamental ingredient of play.
