Teresita Fernandez asserts: “The way you live, the people you choose to love and the way you love them, the way you vote, the words that come out of your mouth…will also become the raw material for the art you make.” Through your own work and touching on art historical references, this is a class to help students focus on individuality in art and deepening their practice. This is not a “how to” class; it’s a self-directed independent study. That said, beginners are welcome, as it’s never to early to explore artistic influences and investigate paths that acknowledge the myth of originality while simultaneously making art that’s the most cogent for you, personally. The objective of this class is not to learn new skills as much as to explore your potential for making meaningful art and expand possibilities for future growth.
“Being an artist is not just about what happens when you are in the studio,” Teresita Fernández asserted in her spectacular commencement address on what it means to be an artist. “The way you live, the people you choose to love and the way you love them, the way you vote, the words that come out of your mouth… will also become the raw material for the art you make.”
