“WdKA – Illustration – Morale Patch”
Yesterday we had a STUDIEDAG-ILLUSTRATIE-2016. After a significant proces of educational changes at the WdKA in the last 4 years, I sensed the urgency to get together with the teachers of the department of Illustration. If the WdKA has changed its program; what does that imply for our core-values of Illustration within the WdKA?
We had presentations by Maarten Uwland & Loes Sikkes as a reminder that education can always be different. I believe that how we provide our education; what we teach, how we teach, and why; should be a conscious decision.
We talked together about our aspirations for the next 5 years, with Anneke Seelen as our moderator. During our talks Kim Ravers illustrated our first concepts and ideas. Furthermore every teacher has deliverd his/her own image of how they want the department to be seen by others.
It has been an exciting start, and I will be looking forward at reflecting to this day at a later moment in the proces. For now the cast is die!
