In class on Monday, February 28: Peruse the magazine rack at the Decker Library – find at least 4 images that really resonate with you. Two of these must be the work of contemporary artists (working now or within the last 10 years). Color copy these and include them in your journal, to be handed in by the end of class.
By Monday, March 7: Consider your options for the field trip to be undertaken in this class. Where do you want to go? What do you want to see, experience or do? The field trip should be focused. It should support your research, your work as an artist. The field trip can take the form of a visit to an exhibition (or multiple); it could take the form of a tour of a particular place or volunteering/working at a community organization for a day. You can undertake this expedition on the day we have set aside for this: Monday, April 11 or before this date. Start your research now, so that you can take advantage of exhibition timelines and/or special events. You must document your fieldtrip experience through pictures/photographs, writing, sketches and/or the accumulation of evidence. Bring your preliminary list of ideas on an 81/2 x 11 sheet of paper next week, so that I can collect and review them.
