This course is (almost) complete artistic freedom. Freedom can be exciting and overwhelming at the same time. You need to have a focus and direction for your work, but this is your opportunity to explore what you are interested in. If you make something great share it with the group and inspire someone else. If it's not working, change it or just try something different. There won't be many times in your life that you have a room full of supplies along with the time and freedom to do just about anything you want.
We meet every other week after school to share progress. Independent students work at a variety of times throughout the day. Meetings are the only chance you have to see what everyone else is working on and share your work with others. We use this time to help problem solve and find inspiration from peers. It's truly exciting to see each of you grow as artists throughout the year.
