This course is for students who are beyond the beginning drawing/ painting level, and are ready to intensively develop their imagination. In a supportive environment, each student will design a six-week project that emphasizes imaginative imagery. Memory, dreams, fiction and literature can all be used as subject matter. In addition to models, source materials such as photos, collages and sketches can be used as tools to develop finished works. Working with a choice of media, including collage, photos, digital prints and paint, this course will give students the opportunity to explore their artistic vision. Discussions on mixed media, experimental procedures and archival concerns will complement studio work. NOTE: Please bring drawing or painting materials, examples of your work and possible source materials to the first session, and be prepared to discuss ideas for your project.
