A Vital Practice - The Creative Work of Spark Studio
A Vital Practice - The Creative Work of Spark Studio
Vesty, Suzanne

This inspiring publication provides a documentation and outline of the orientation of practice and philosophies that underpin Spark Studio projects and wider studio work implemented through series of projects funded by the Tertiary Education Commission. The projects provide an innovative and unique blend of visual arts learning and creative expression; integrating art making methodologies with person centred self development processes. This book presents and celebrates the experience and works of Spark Studio students in their art making process. It features many of the artworks created throughout the programmes, and artist statements which authentically record each person's experience. Spark Studio is a creative space in St. Lukes in Auckland, offering an innovative art programme for adults with various disabilities. The sessions provide a learning process in visual arts education especially orientated to the requirements and circumstances of our artists; they also promote and encourage self-development through the vehicle of creative expression.
