Notes from the Studio

Notes from the Studio is a one-hour lecture series featurung CCA Painting/Drawing faculty and friends.
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's overlooked, 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.
