Question of the Month—Answer
How many hours did it take students to create their Artist Studies, like the one pictured above?
Students in both Art as a Practice classes had about 3 hours to work on their projects, though many spent more hours outside of class to complete them.
In the November newsletter, we shared about how students selected a BIPOC artist that could represent the name of the art room on the new campus. They presented their artists to the trustees of the Marie Lamfrom Foundation, researched their artists further and taught their class about their findings, and then selected a piece of art from their artist's body of work to create a study of. In the art world, a study is a way artists practice close looking and skill building in the style of another artist they are inspired by. Some of our students created their artist studies as digital mosaics using Google Draw!
