School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Kasimir Malevich, Red Square, 1915
That is my school's mascot. A red square. Haha well, not really...but it should be. Just because we're so consheptual.
So, second semester into SAIC what have I learned? That I haven't produced enough work to make my daddy proud. Sorry, Dad. This must change this semester! More paintings, more sketching, more workbooking, more sewing more...you get the point. and hopefully it will be good enough for me to share it with on here!
Here are my classes for the semester:
Blue Sheet, Riva Lehrer
Overall a pretty interesting class, getting a lot of practice with the figure. She knows a lot about anatomy which is different from other figure drawing classes i've taken. Check out her work!
Fiber and Material Studies
I was so excited for this class because textiles/fiber and material studies was what I originally came here to do. However, so far, it just feels like knitting club. Once we move in to surface design though...
Core Studio II
Its a continuing class from last semester; pretty relaxed. We are currently working on stop motion animation which is super fun!
check out this awesome stop-motion video :)
Research Studio II: FunZone
Studio all about the ways and means of FUN. and of course, Serious Play. google it. Enough said. I am currently working on a proposal for an Artbash alternative space installation based on:
Artist: Ai Weiwei
The more excited I get about the installation, the more i'm going to be sulking with Ben and Jerry's if I don't get picked. BAH! but I will post sketched of it soon! positive thinking.
FYS II: Writing for the School Newspaper
Never thought i'd be in this. At least i'm trying something new?
Art History: Modernism, Postmodernism and Antimodernism
At least i'm paying attention in class...and not playing tetris.
and now goodnight, from my overpriced dorm room.
