Developing a Series I

Course Description
This is a course for students or artists who have some experience making art and are looking towards developing a personal body of work that could be used for an exhibition or grant proposal. Participants will learn how to focus on one idea and to develop that idea into a strong and meaningful series of work. There will also be an emphasis on learning to express your ideas in writing to develop an artist statement. Images of prominent artists who work in series will be an important part of this course. Students can work in a medium of their choice including drawing, painting, photography or sculpture. Having a course that includes students working with different media and with different focuses, creates a vibrant cross-fertilization of ideas and approaches. Prerequisite: 3rd year of Diploma program or completed at least four 200 level drawing or painting courses at VISA or permission of the Director.
