Abstract This is a moment to capture and archive for art education; a moment in time to recall later in a career embarked upon in a global pandemic. This paper presents how we have continued to ‘learn to learn’ how to teach, while learning at home and teaching in remote virtual placements from home as a form radical relatedness (McKernan, 2004). We have developed new agile, responsive and ethical ways to design and co-design learning experiences to create curious and critical encounters for students who were also at home (Coleman & MacDonald, 2020). We have been working in our home studios developing new ways of learning art pedagogies and practices as individuals, as well as within an a/r/tographic collective. We have remained connected several physical ways: co-writing a speculative pandemic zine and sending artworks to each other while sharing all learning experiences as a co-lab for becoming.
