At the center of each process is a careful search for personal visual language that conveys the individual’s response. Traditional critiques are replaced with discussions of how the work presents the artist’s own personal discovery. By learning to trust one’s own perceptions and felt sense of meaning, and then finding the visual markings congruent with that experience, the artist discovers an imagery that not only offers aesthetic value, but also reveals an authentic self of inherent value.

Grades 9-12. Location: St. Paul's Schools. Nature has always been a source of inspiration for artistic creating throughout the ages. Intended for the student who is moved by beauty and wishes to respond artistically to the colors, textures and forms found in nature, this course is a remarkable journey in collaborating with nature to create very personal, meaningful art. Rather than simply drawing from life, students are asked to think critically about subject matter choices and points of view. Beginning with open-ended prompts to help determine personally meaningful or symbolic subject matter for life-drawing, students respond visually by seeking places, objects, and scenes to communicate personal narratives. Students think deeply and critically about how to infuse a work from life with symbolic meaning, mood, and personal style via distinct personal mark-making and expression.
