Community, Collaboration and Pedagogy
Catalina works collaboratively with artists and organisations to enable and support the professional development, visibility and value of contemporary artistic practice and art education in Oxford.
Artists' Salon is open to all. You are invited to bring a piece of work at any level of completion, and take part in discussion in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. At the Artists' Salon we use peer feedback to develop our work through critical thinking and close observation. Presenting work and taking part in discussion is optional and you can just come and observe if you prefer. Non-artists are also welcome.

Art education and teaching art is an integral part of Catalina's practice. It is not only a way of sharing a common language, but also of validating the language and its participants. Catalina is interested in art education in a broad sense and has been gaining experience of teaching at almost all educational phases, from early years to adult education, in equally diverse settings.
