Continued my large scale food painting today. Not only did I finish painting the coffee bean, but I started to add food brands and logos around it. It wasn’t easy to do (in fact it was very uncomfortable on my arms), but by the end of the day, I managed to add several brands to the board.
The rest of the day was filled with TALKING! First, after lunch, we had to year 3 students come in and talk about their work. One showed us a video of her making a giant, clay pot, completely naked. The recurring trait of her work is that she completely immerses herself in it. The second student’s work is based around fantasy landscapes and environments, rendered in 3-D. He gradually takes his time, just going through the motions until he can reaches a final outcome. The talks were good.
Later on, we had to attend a meeting with an art curator. This talk proved to be more invaluable, as the curator talked about selling our art to a gallery, working on commissions, setting up our own studios, hiring assistants, working for a gallery and more.
It was a lot to take in, but Kate took notes, so I can read what I missed.
