Foley Residency (Fall 2013)

Art for Art Sake

 Abstraction in both Painting and Drawing, November 2013

Abstraction in both Painting and Drawing, November 2013

By working with 3 different art classes (Painting, Drawing and Craft), Heidi will provide an opportunity for students to explore concepts of art and composition, as well as encouraging the use of their own artistic vision to create abstract works.

Learning Goals: 

  1. Reinforcing elements of art and principles of design, while learning about abstraction
  2. Creating an instant response method for the students to reflect on their decisions during the process of creation. Learning to trust their reaction (both good and bad), with the support of their classmates 
  3. (Bookmaking) Understanding the historical context of books, and technical skills in creating handbound books.

The students' work from Heidi's residency will be featured at an exhibition held in conjunction with our holiday concert.
