  • Using the idea of Art and Fear as your next breadth work – what ideas do you find yourself leaning towards when it comes to the imagery for your next work? Why do you see yourself headed in that direction? How are you going to make the ideas CLEAR and READABLE in your artwork?

Let’s go to NYC! Dwight Moore and his paintings can take us there if we can’t all really go… http://www.dwigmore.com/marsh_exhibit.html

DO NOT CRITIQUE the work of a classmate that you have been working next to the whole time… SERIOUSLY!
