The first two weeks will focus on the topic of space. Flat, compressed, rhythmic and shallow space are among the types of space that will be explored. The following two weeks will address the subject of memory. Students will learn how other artists deal with archive and memory, and how they themselves can conduct research and work from their own memories. Students will work on two pieces during this workshop, each spanning two sessions. For drawing or painting students with some experience.
The instructor will email students prior to starting the class regarding what materials they need to prepare.
