In this 6-week course we are paying particular attention to the expressive potential in individual, student-defined projects. Emphasis can range from conceptualizing and producing the very first stages of a project, to expanding a work in-progress, or bringing a body of work to its final state. The scope of a project can be small or large and diverse media is welcome. The work will be unified by a course structure designed to support and enhance each person’s immersion in visual art. The goal of the course is the definition and bringing together of a particular stage of the work by the end of the semester. Individual participants will be aided in the clarification of his/her intent and given support with technical issues. Creativity and experimentation will be encouraged. Class sessions will include presentations, critiques, discussion and hands-on exercises based on topics of mutual relevance.
