Questions?  Please contact Studio Arts Intensive Director, Olivia Beaufait:
Instructor Klara Glosova — “The class will start with a three-day drawing intensive. The purpose of this introductory studio course will be mainly exploratory; to see what level you are working at and to jumpstart the flow of your creative juices. Be prepared to start with a bang, we will be drawing for six hours each day!

For those continuing on after the first week, we will meet on weekly basis for a seminar-style class. We will discuss how your own artistic practice and interests fit within larger art historical frameworks. We will visit exhibitions, meet with local curators and visit artist studios. We will learn about current trends in contemporary art both locally and worldwide. Towards the end of the winter session, the focus will shift to the development of your portfolio and/or cohesive body of work. I will work with each student individually in any chosen media, and guide their projects towards completion and the final exhibition.”
