• All Levels
  • Interdisciplinary

This course is for those who have taken the first session of Image Development. Each participant brings a rich idea to focus on (for example the body of work in notation form produced a previous term). This idea will be 'workshopped' by the group. The power of many responses to your creative embryo adds depth and breadth to help it come to final form. This course focuses on making and doing in the studio with a team of people who have the same understanding of the creative process you do. Each person will be contacted by the instructor prior to the start to make sure you are comfortable to bring your ideas to the first class. This course is ideal for those with conviction about their project that is not yet complete in final form.

Tuition: $310 | Materials fee: $20 | Total: $330

Notes: No class on Monday, May 23 for Victoria Day. A make-up class will be held during the make-up week (June 20).

What you will learn

  • You will learn some exercises you can use to jump start your personal concepts or imagery in a fresh direction. Ideal if you are coming back to the studio after a fallow period or your ideas are embryonic. These are different from the exercises in term one of this course. 
  • Through collaboration, your ideas will further develop in new directions through the power of the group making work for you following parameters you design. All participants are familiar with the excercises in the first term of Image Development so there will be a common understanding from the beginning. 
  • A plan for a body of your work with depth and originality 'workshopped' by group will be your take away. 

Materials to Bring

  • Loose drawing materials you are comfortable with, that includes coloured materials. We are after making visual statements in rough form in a dynamic manner. Quick drawing tools you like to use....
  • Paper that complements the above. Larger is better than smaller. More rather than less. It should be portable as in a spiral bound sketchbook.

Note: This is not a beginner's course so I'm not being specific here. Best to bring what works for you inside these parameters.

  • Popular example A: watercolour crayons, brushes, water jar with large spiral bound sketchbook of heavy paper complemented by graphite pencils and ink pens in black or colour for line work.
  • Popular example B: artist quality chalk pastels, black conté stick, and graphite pencils, ink pens in black or colour for line work with large spiral bound sketchbook of heavy paper.
