In Drawing from the Depths, students develop authentic approaches to creating emotionally charged work without resorting to cliche or sentimentalism. In class, we’ll discuss works by artists who excel at delving into deep emotional terrain. Students select a theme or themes (such as desire, shame, ecstasy) to explore over the 6 week course. Short, experimental weekly assignments lead to a 2- or 3- page finished work. Source material may be autobiographical, nonfiction, or fiction.Read More
