Writing and Talking About Your Work

Course Description:

Crafting an artist statement, applying for exhibitions, and giving an “elevator pitch” for your artistic vision can all feel daunting. Through simple drawing and mindfulness exercises, along with the practice of verbal description, we’ll stretch our ability to look, talk and listen to works of art. We’ll use these tools to talk about our own work and bring our practice to a new level. Artists are strongly encouraged to bring in their own work for us to discuss in a supportive environment.

Opening the Door to Contemporary Art

Course Description:

Contemporary art can often seem inaccessible. It's like a door to a big room that we have difficulty opening. With your instructor who is a practicing contemporary artist, we’ll crack the door open by exploring the difference between the terms “modern” and “contemporary,” and then learn about the themes, ideas and questions contemporary artists address. We’ll discover how contemporary artists work by conducting a studio visit at Mana Contemporary and visiting Devening Projects, a contemporary art gallery in Chicago’s Garfield Park.
