Master Class: Talking it Out: Critique and Discussion
Engage in critical group dialogues and individual critiques to hone the fundamental aspects of your work and deepen your understanding of contemporary art practice. In this workshop for advanced painters, students produce work at their own pace, pausing for daily discussion with the instructor and peers. Topics are in-depth and cover a wide-ranging scope, including technique, concept, and approach. Students are expected to work independently and to set their own studio goals for the week. We strongly encourage a broad interpretation of painting for this workshop, and welcome artists working in installation and incorporating 3D elements into their paintings. Portfolios will be accepted on a rolling basis. Instructions on how to submit your portfolio are as follows: Submit digital images of your work in one single PDF (as opposed to individual JPG attachments) via email directly to Lindsey Yeager, Studio Coordinator of Painting, Drawing & Printmaking, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The single PDF must be less than 10 MB to be considered. Include 5-10 images of your work with image identification that lists the title, media, dimensions and year of each image. While not required, it is helpful to see an artist statement addressing the images you send. Include “Advanced Portfolio Review” in the subject line of your email, as well as the title of the workshop for which you are applying. Please provide a phone number where you can be reached and a link to your website. Submissions that do not follow the requested directions will not be reviewed. If you are accepted, a deposit of $650 will be required within one week of notification of acceptance to hold your place. Housing will be assigned on a space-available basis upon enrollment.
