Sept. 4 PROPOSALS for Open Call Exhibition of Student Work Due!!

Tuesday Sept. 8 Conflated Spaces

Bring in reproductions (color or black & white) of five different paintings. Make a series of collages using pieces from all five paintings. Make sure you use more than two paintings in a single collage. Concentrate on the edges where the different paintings collide. When making the collage, consider the difference between the hard edge of cut paper vs the softer edge of a tear.* Think of the history of these paintings and what happens when they are recomposed into a unified space. Do they react to one another? Inform one another? Are they abstracted or fragmented? How does this practice reflect the way you view the paintings as images or as singular works? Create a painting based on one of your collages.

*Once you have made at least one physical collage, you have the option to make additional collages digitally.

Tuesday Oct. 6 Painting in Spaces – unveiling Oct. 27 (weather permitting)

Lecture on Mural Painting, public art and alternative spaces

Demo on “griding out” an image

Begin developing ideas for mural

Taking what we learned from the grid and conflated spaces projects, we will create a collaborative mock up of an image and divide it into a grid, this grid will then be used to create a mural on the wall outside Wooster. Consideration must be given to location, meaning and design in developing this project. What do you do with a public space? What do you say and to whom are you speaking? What will you represent? Who will you represent? This is a collaborative project and the class as a whole will develop the mural together.

Thursday Oct. 29 sourceREsourcecrit Dec. 8 & 10

Go out into the world and gather images, inspiration and ideas using your phone, sketchbook and other recording devices to bring back to the studio to compose a painting from. Look around you, in your everyday life, for color combinations, shapes, situations, designs, atmosphere, etc. to bring to your painting. From these you will create a series of preparatory sketches and studies. The work should have a considered subject using your preparatory sketches and other resources you have gathered. I want you to think about what you want to paint and why. This does not mean that you have to pre-design the work or have it completely figured out before hand, instead you are to enter into a painting with an intent and allow for intuition or chance or happenstance or discovery to guide the process. How do you create a space for yourself to make work about something while allowing yourself an element of play and discovery? For critique you will display your source material and finished painting.
