How to Write... with Kelley Aitken (4wk) Wednesday April 24 - May 15, 2024, 2-5pm
Artists tend to work in isolation. Many have found that to write or journal provides a way to work through issues and challenges that arise in the work. It can help us to speak about our work with ease and confidence. This course is not about writing an artist's statement or grant proposal but rather engaging in a support practice for the work we have already produced; work in progress; and work we might wish to undertake.
In this 4 week course we will talk about art, our own and the work of artists we admire or who have inspired or mentored us. We’ll look at artists who use text as inspiration and content. We’ll read articles or essays by artists who speak about art in an engaging way. We’ll talk about talking about art. We’ll write about it.
Participants will be expected to share images of their own work with the class and to bring in images of artists they admire to discuss and describe.
We will undertake a number writing exercises. There will be readings and class discussion.
Materials list to bring:
A journal and whatever writing utensil/s you prefer.
A large sketchbook, (9 X 12” minimum) pencil and eraser.
After class one we may do some work with colour and collage. Materials to be discussed.
This class requires 4 participants to run
