The week of summer studio, 2014 was the best studio course I've ever had; it's the only graduate studio class I've ever had, and it exceeded my physical, cognitive, and emotional expectations. Additionally, the online preparatory work was outstanding, fun, and extremely helpful.
I took Experimental Drawing and explored a number of drawing ideas: collaborative art making, book making, performance drawing, partially uncontrollable drawing tools, collage, image transfer techniques, critique and reflection strategies, and diverse media (new, odd, and familiar).
All of this drawing experimentation encouraged the relinquishing of strict adherence to preciousness as well as the developing of a comfort with unrequited expectations. Scratching at ideas proved to be a priceless activity with immeasurable rewards in motivation, freedom, and inspiration.
