The SMFA has opened registration for the Fall semester so I enrolled in "Art as Process" being taught by Kata Hull, Rhoda Rosenberg & Robert Siegelman. The class meets 2 nights a week for 3 1/2 hours each night so life as I know it is going to change radically starting in September. :-) It sounds like a great class though & just what I need at this stage.
"This transformative workshop is for individuals who want the challenge of investigating new & unique ways of making art. This intensive class focuses on experimentation & the creative process, rather than a pre-imagined or calculated end product. In each class meeting a different project will be introduced, worked on, & completed. We will explore painting, drawing, printmaking (monotypes), sculpture, & other media with an eye toward combining materials & media in unusual ways. Abstraction, Realism, & Conceptual approaches, ideas, & projects also will be introduced & discussed. Unique in Boston, this workshop exemplifies the open approach to making art taught at the Museum School & therefore provides students interested in a Museum School education a unique preview. Open to all, from beginners to the very advanced, Art as Process is particularly useful for those assembling a portfolio for art school, exploring the idea of a professional art career, or interested in exploring & developing their own creative abilities."
