In order to make successful work, artists must know when to follow their instincts, take risks or try new approaches toward developing ideas. Self-confidence and the ability to be critical of one’s own work are the tools that come with experience.
This course is intended to offer students feedback on their work as it develops. Their work is addressed within the context of individual development and contemporary issues in painting. Critical response to student work is the primary emphasis of this class. Through visual dialogue, students become more adept at understanding their work objectively and gain confidence in their art-making. Students are expected to make visual and written presentations as well as participate in class discussions.
All student work is to be completed outside of class time in assigned studios.
