Lightbox is an online resource and supportive tool for art teachers and students. It brings together contemporary art, artists, current teaching practice, a range of assessment tools, including video assessment guides, all of which feed directly into the objectives of the WJEC Art and Design programme.
The creative industries have been the fastest growing sector of the UK economy in the last 10-15 years as artists and creative practitioners employ a wider spectrum of media to explore their ideas and skills. Lightbox’s aim is to support art departments in delivering and assessing the cross-disciplinary skills that our new creative professionals need.
Offering a simple set of categories linking to artist websites, creative institutions, assessment advice and vocationally led films, Lightbox contributes towards a wider understanding of contemporary art practice and its relationship to education, the creative industries, technology and the changing careers landscape of the 21st century.
