Open your studio practice to new possibilities in this online intensive workshop designed for experienced artists working in any media.  Students work on their own self-directed prompts and projects amidst one-on-one and group discussions and critiques structured by the instructor, highlighting color and materials choices, the treatment of surface and other elements of making work that affect content. Demonstrations, prompts and conversations take place in class to foster discourse and strengthen praxes. Students will present a digital portfolio of their work as a stepping-stone to opening up a dialog about the form and content within their work.


Students should use all materials necessary to make their work as well as prepare a digital portfolio of recent work (20 images max).
