What we do:
Major Projects are more independent at the advanced level, so that you can have the freedom to explore the media and subject matter you enjoyed in Drawing & Painting. We will have 1 major project a month with a simple direction from me that you may each interpret in a slightly different way. It will be part of your job to design and organize your work to meet the set deadlines.
This year you already have more freedom, but this is (almost) complete freedom. You all have great ideas. This is your opportunity to explore what you are interested in. If you finish your work for me early, get out some materials and play. 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.
Project Reflection Essays:
While most students don't think about writing in art, it truly is an important part of your art education. For each project, you will reflect on your work, the creative process and the work of your classmates.
