One of the first tasks in the course notes is to seek out a useful list of research links & materials to keep referring back to throughout the course. Here’s the links I’ve found so far…
Interesting weareoca article – ‘so what is research’?
The OCA link to the vimeo videos for the 18 episodes of Art of the Western World.
Or the first one actually on vimeo: https://vimeo.com/16965101/description
Todo: would be useful to find a vimeo downloader so I can watch them offline on the way to Dorset.
There’s also a few vids to watch on the resources page of the course: http://www.oca-student.com/course/history-art-1-western-art
Online image library links all listed here:
Online galleries list (including books to download etc)
Other art history resources list to go through:
Module reading list:
Guide to the Harvard reference system:
(I’ve downloaded the PDF now)
Useful looking study guides
Really interesting study guide on keeping sketchbooks. As a photographer I’ve not kept a sketch book for 20 years (since art A level). Much of this course is exploring other people’s art so it might be a good time to find some pencils from the loft?
