Work in any media will be submitted as a jpg as long as the work is abstract in nature. (Generally speaking, abstraction means non-figurative or a more objective approach to line, form, color/value and surface). This 10 week, 2 hour each session zoom critique class will be an ongoing examination of the abstract drawings and paintings of students interested in further developing their creative direction, both materially and aesthetically. Clarity and visual expansion will be achieved by weekly discussions of each students work and also by the inclusion of an eclectic assortment of contemporary, international art work to give the class a wider perspective. Weekly but elective homework assignments will be presented to help with generating ideas and processes. Visual thinking and meaning is specific to art, and that vocabulary is infinite. The attempt to verbally articulate that perception can be difficult but immensely helpful to the artist. When faced with the infinite, the artist must make a first step, and then another. The collective endeavor of a critique class could be the key to the door in the wall.
