Drawing Detectives: sifting through the evidence
Using problem solving, discovery and observation to enhance creative thinking.
A detective when first at a crime scene has little or no knowledge of what has happened. They start their investigation with only ambiguous ideas, which must be developed through careful research and primary observation. By piecing together subtle visual clues, detectives can realise and begin to understand the bigger picture.
In this Summer School you will experience how artists and designers in a similar way to detectives, often start with little more than an unformed idea. To translate this idea into a tangible outcome and develop alternative possibilities, they must follow all available leads and collect information. To solve creative problems in this workshop, you will be encouraged to work in a similar way to a detective. This will be through a variety of processes and activities that will enable you to build up a body of visual evidence. By following clues, recording observations, solving visual problems, testing materials and challenging your creative thinking you will begin to reveal new and exciting possibilities and ideas. Through using all that is available to you – for example, drawing, model making and photography, you will explore the possible leads to the testing and realisation of serious concepts. You will become the detective in your own creative process.
This Summer School provides an ideal experience of bridging the gap between school/college and university level enquiry into the art and design creative process.
