A bitter day but the eleven young artists in this semester's Saturday in the Studio spread out around the grounds of the Contemporary Art Center and made additions to their working sketch books as they gather ideas for their own projects. The first three weeks they devote to research followed by four weeks of creating.
They must submit a schematic drawing if they choose to work dimensionally indicating that they have thought the project through and can visualize looking at the form from all directions.
The focus is upon using simple, easily found, often thrown away items from which a piece of 'art from their heart' is made.
I have five boys and six girls in this group it will be grand to see what unfolds.
