FICA is pleased to invite you to a workshop for students and young artists proposed by artist and educator, Krishnapriya C.P., on structuring ideas by presenting thought processes via visual narratives.
This workshop seeks to help students and young artists to develop tools, and to systematically approach thinking through art. The aim of this workshop will be to visually record one’s accumulated thoughts, defining one’s foundational sources, and to use everyday conversations and experiences to build on ideas. Source Book will be a 3-hour long session of discussing, learning, thinking and making.
The workshop will continue some of the ongoing discussions on reading, making and research, that have been part of FICA's recent projects - Torchlight Journal @Project_Space, as well as the current course with Serendipity Arts Foundation, On-Site: a workshop exploring process, dialogue and experimentation.

She is interested in understanding the process of art pedagogy. She has worked with art students and young artists to develop their process based works. One such collective project that she did with a group of students was on archiving labour as an artistic exercise.
