Developing a Series with Wendy Welch
March 11, 2020
This is the second part of a course for students who have taken Developing a Series I and would like to develop their current series further or who want to start a new one based on a related idea or concept. The course is ideal for those who have some experience making art and are looking towards developing a personal body of work that could be used for an exhibition or grant proposal. Participants learn how to focus on one idea and to develop that idea into a strong and meaningful series of work. There will also be an emphasis on learning to express your ideas in writing to develop an artist statement. Images of prominent artists who work in series will be an important part of this course. Students can work in a medium of their choice including drawing, painting, photography or sculpture. Having a course that includes students working with different media and with different focuses creates a vibrant cross-fertilization of ideas and approaches. It is not necessary to have taken Developing a Series I, but you will need to obtain permission of Director to enroll in the course. Prerequisite: 3rd year of Diploma program or completed at least four 200 level drawing or painting courses at VISA or permission of the Director.
