Schedule at a glance

3 September - 9 September
Advanced Studio II Introduction
Task for week 1
Create a schedule for your terms work.

This week, I would like you to create a schedule for yourself, outlining your courses, important dates (deadlines, critiques) and importantly studio time. We all lead busy lives and a way to create a concrete path forward is to set aside regular time each week to devote to your studio practice without any other distractions. We can discuss this in the next two weeks during our individual tutorials.

Critique Guidelines:

Our critiques will usually proceed according to the following steps:
1. Describe what you see and experience without going into interpretation. Or
What do you see and experience?
2. Begin connecting observations with interpretation. Or
What do these observations make you think about?
3. Situate the work within artistic discourse and art history.
What other artwork or artists does this work remind you of?
4. Articulate how the work is significant within a current time frame.
Is this work contemporary? How does the work reflect contemporary questions, issues, etc?

...just to remind, I would like to structure this weeks (group) meetings as focused critiques that particularly consider how you have responded to feedback/moved forward in the last month. How is/is that response reflected in your latest efforts? Focus on one or two critical elements of the 1st set of critiques or meetings w Chris that resonated with you/provoked questions/ directions/articulations/future forays.


29 October - 4 November

Hi all, after looking at the schedule and considering the desire for those resident in Vancouver to get together en studio to (esp) view paint first hand while also wanting to accommodate those of you who would prefer a one on one meeting this week, I have created the following schedule. Those of you out of town have two options: You can have a one on one meeting on Saturday if you so desire and you can also choose to attend the in situ salon via Skype. I have created many time options, but will hone a 3-6 hr time slot for the in situ salon depending on demand. Also if you are only interested in a one on one meeting on Saturday, please note they will be 40 min from the time you sign up for.

IMPORTANT: if you are out of town and do wish to attend the in situ salon via Skype, please let me know so I can ensure your involvement. That said, I will have the laptop with me, and we will have Skype activated.

So to recap: Saturday schedule is for one on one meetings only. Tuesday and Wednesday are OPTIONS for our face to face salon- once you have responded, I will schedule EITHER Tues. or Wed. for it depending on popular availability.

Reflective Portfolio
Please submit a reflective portfolio (500-1000 words, with images) that charts the progress you have made in the studio. Your account should make reference to aspects of the discussions that occurred in the series of critiques we undertook this semester.
Try to address the following:
• how your knowledge of the context for your practice has developed
• how the identification of your thematic concerns has developed
• how your studio practice has developed in relation to historical systems of inquiry or creative knowledge
• how your way of making has changed and evolved in response to (or as a driver of) the above considerations

Please upload a file <50MB (.pdf is best) to your virtual studio, or provide a link there to an archive located elsewhere.
