|contemplating the possibilities|
Half-way through our 8 weeks together,
I asked the class to work from one source, three ways.
This week, they picked their favorite from that series, and expanded on it.
The project runs two weeks, with some sort of narrative structure as the goal.
|creating the foundation|
The result: Intense quiet and fascinating work.
These students bring such energy to the evening.
|hard at work|
Each has a strong style, manifest in their palette and materials.
The room feels like a lab: intense experiments at each table.
|Start for cityscape|
The gift of teaching is being surprised,
over and over,
by the new answers students find.
|four small pages, right, based on larger piece, left|
They bring energy to even the smallest frame.
|Big feeling, tiny canvas|
They create work unique and amazing.
The "homework" is listen to favorite music, and think about structure: line, theme, supporting elements. Can't wait to see what happens next week.
