Drawing in the context of contemporary practice has increasingly come to be viewed as a form in and of itself rather than as a "support" for other forms. This class will emphasize drawing as the most immediate way to illustrate one's ideas as opposed to traditional drawing classes, which focus on technique. Students in this class will be given the time and the means to incorporate drawing into their own practices and to produce a significant body of work. This class encourages collaborative processes as well as "shooting from the hip". Ultimately, I hope to demonstrate that chance, chaos and collaboration can become integral components of any practice that produce exciting and unexpected results. Make first, think later!
