Ships Passing in the Night
I have been very happy with my students this semester—terrific effort and creative work, many times from students who didn’t seem that interested in art at the beginning of my courses.
Here’s the final project from my Beginning Drawing course. They voted on the theme “Ships in Space,” and then created group projects to reflect the concept. They could use any media, and so I got a performance, a painting, and several interactive installations. Working in groups, on completely open projects, opens up students’ minds to the possibilities that art can offer. It shows what drawing can lead to.
