… to online-studio-culture.org, an online academic/professional platform for the interdisciplinary exploration of theories and practices of distant teaching and learning in the visual arts. We hope you will find our efforts informative, inspiring, yet also academically rigorous, and welcome your efforts and contributions towards our aims.
Initially, online-studio-culture.org is simply a blog dedicated to distant teaching and learning specifically for creative studio practices in the visual arts. Each post will introduce an overview, a tool, resource, practice or policy to be potentially used for distant teaching and learning and will put it up for discussion. Where appropriate and feasible, posts will also provide links to access those means discussed. All posts will be fully searchable by titles, categories and/or tags for easy and convenient accessibility.
However, online-studio-culture.org is also intended to become a communal project where people may share and exchange their experiences. Please, rate, comment, and add to each post to discursively develop what the title promises: a sense of online studio culture.
This site is inspired and based on the many heroic efforts of visual arts academics and instructors from around the world – and especially those of my colleagues at AVA – who have taken up the challenge of transferring their respective classes, courses, and practices to online modes as the Covid-19 pandemic overtook the world.
