- Select a surface.
- Can be any material. Paper, wood, cardboard, fabric. You can also make a surface by taping/gluing/sewing together smaller pieces of material. For instance, used envelopes can be cut up and pasted together to make a surface. Newspaper is also an interesting option.
- Surface area has to measure 40 inches. This approach gives you options – can have rectangle, square, vertical/horizontal format. You can even have a circular shape.
- Once you have your surface ready to go, begin making your mark.
- Repeat the method until you cover/occupy the entire surface.
- Present your ideas to the class on your scheduled day (I will announce presentation dates during class time). Must have two different ideas, at least three pieces of research for each, two must be visual imagery. There is a handout that must be filled out before you present. You can find it on LMS.
- Once complete, post professional images and an artist statement on your blog.
- You must be able to support all your decisions, conceptual and formal, verbally and in an artist statement.
- You are expected to make thoughtful decisions that demonstrate research, intellect and meaning.
- Professional images of the final solution are required as well as an artist statement.
- Post images and statement on your blog after you have presented final solution to the class.
