with David Baker
2-5pm, $175 *Lunch included if taken with New Best Friends: Water and Mixed Medias
Did your piece turn out SO well… but something still seems bothersome? Use your own art work as a springboard to create a second state that has more clarity, more power and, in short, comes closer to the mark. This workshop will provide a model for analyzing our own art. This will lead to creative work that has greater effectiveness and depth of personal expression. Students will be asked to bring artwork that they would like to continue working on to gain feedback from the group.
