When is a still life not so still? When it moves into three dimensions and is capable of infinite change. This five-week class will begin with students constructing their own arrangement of objects with papier-mâché or from simple materials like paper, cardboard, masking tape, and glue. These 3D objects will serve as an ever-changing springboard for drawings, collages, and paintings. Exercises will focus on playing with form, color, and composition. We will see how far we can push our work, feeling unconstrained by trying to faithfully reproduce “real life” objects. Slide shows of the work of modern and contemporary artists will supplement the exercises. Our first four zoom video meetings will consist of teacher demonstrations, group discussions, slideshows, and some independent work time. You will be free to continue to work on exercises at your own pace and on your own schedule outside scheduled zoom meetings. Our fifth and final zoom video meeting will consist of a group discussion of some of the work produced by students during the previous four weeks.
