Getting Started with Creative Projects

This course will focus on how an artist can cultivate interests and experiences in the world as inspiration and content for energized, expressive picture making. Monthly meetings will include mini lectures exposing students to work by contemporary artists in order to foster open discussions around the art-making process, as well as creative exercises, homework assignments for generating project ideas, critique and field trip(s). Do you have a project in the works, ideas you would like to explore, or thoughts yet developed?  Bring your started projects and ideas to the first class and this workshop will support you in taking the next steps.

*Class will meet on: 3/30, 4/27, 5/18
