SOLD OUT! Drawing for the Absolutely Terrified

April 23, 2014 to May 14, 2014 — 06:30 PM to 09:30 PM Instructor: Kyung Cozza

This is a course for anyone who has ever said, “I can’t draw” (but wished it were otherwise!). In this introductory drawing course (for new students as well as those looking to build on a little experience), you will develop and refine skills and increase your powers of observation. You will learn at your own pace while following a structured course with emphasis on self-discovery and skill development, as you investigate a broad range of drawing materials. You’ll leave with a greater confidence, and the skill to move on to another drawing or painting class.

NEW DATE! Political Art: An Aesthetic Account of Dissent

May 3, 2014 to May 18, 2014 — 12:00 PM to 03:00 PM Instructor: Faheem Haider

This class will introduce political art as a historically grounded contemporary art practice that both shapes and is shaped by the content of political dissent. Over the course of 3 weekends students will experience a practical, studio-work course that invites participation, collaboration, and out of the box thinking. We will begin with a crash course in thinking about politics and art, and then set to work making artwork that may be deemed “political”. Throughout the class we will be analyzing and discussing the reason why the work we are making succeeds or fails as political art. After all, good political art must first be good art! All ideas about the political and about art will be made welcome.
