ARTS 645
The Feedback Salon

Wednesday 06:30 PM - 09:00 PM

Art Workshop 105

Art is often a lonely enterprise and sometimes one needs feedback. This advanced, tutorial-like course is a weekly critique session designed for serious students or artists of all disciplines in the visual arts interested in making their work better by sharing it with other artists. Participants will develop new work outside of class and spend class time analyzing and responding to each other's work, offering suggestions, comments and ideas for possible directions each person's work could take. Content, technique, and presentation of work will receive equal attention. This salon-style gathering is ideal for those simply interested in showing their work to others, for those interested in creating a focused and clear body of work, and for those who wish to assemble a strong portfolio for future endeavors in the art world, e.g., applying to graduate school, applying for grants, or trying to approach a gallery or institution. All aspects of the presentation will be discussed, including framing, hanging solutions, and photo documentation (taking images of the work). The instructor plans on being an active participant, showing his current work-in-progress to the group for feedback.

Enrollment is limited to 10 students.

Additional course fee: $65
