Here are a few photos from our session last Wednesday. We have tons more photos on our Flickr, so check them out as well. And if you’re dying to do more Jane Fonda workouts and drawings, they’re available on Youtube here.

As we near the end of your first year….

So what will these last weeks look like? Well, you’ll be finishing up your classes next week and then we’ll have three days of reviews followed by a big huge clean up of the studios. Then we will all work together to hang the exhibition. Then… the OPENING. I’ve put it all together with some dates and times below!

NEXT WEDNESDAY!

russia-georgia-mapProfessor Andrew Deutsch will be working with you to create a Ryonji Drawing following John Cage’s score. And the amazing news is that the works you create will be exhibited at the National Gallery in Tbilisi Georgia!

You’ll need to bring to class:

12 stones, each should be about the size of your palm or smaller.
a BUNCH of “not dusty” drawing materials – NO chalk or dusty stuff. Water colors are okay, Sharpies not so good. The more drawing materials the better.
one or two sheets of 12 in x 12 in paper
6 sided dice (one or two).
a ruler or straight edge

YOUR First International Exhibition! (or at least for most of you!)
