In addition to the Painting Lecture Series, our program offers two additional event lecture series that are intended for Painting/Drawing students only:
Notes from the Studio and Open Critique.
Each event series features CCA Painting/Drawing faculty (and friends) in the intimate and casual setting of the Drawing Room (the former location of PLAySPACE) on the San Francisco campus.
Space is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Notes from the Studio
Notes from the Studio is a weekly event series that delivers a brief 45-minute discussion Wednesdays at 4 p.m.
February 5: Anthony Meier
February 19: Christina Empedocles
February 26: Jessica Silverman
March 19: Claudia Altman-Siegel
April 9: Taravat Talepesand
The Open Critique series offers two-hour, invitation-only gatherings with industry critics, scholars, and curators. Students meet to have their work critiqued before an audience.
The presentations function as a glimpse into the artist's studio with an emphasis on current process ideas to provoke often-neglected topics such as the role of failed work that doesn't get seen, methods of working, frustrations and breakthroughs, and the studio itself.
This is a relaxed atmosphere in which students can take a break, meet with friends, have a snack, and sit in on various discussions about process.
