For your semester final:
You will take a series of images (2-10) as the starting point for your concentration. You will also write your first draft of your Artist Statement and present your image and statement to the class.
This series you will work on during the next semester. We will ultimately design and publish a book containing your work.
'Like an introduction to a book, your statement presents the fundamental underpinnings of your art; write it for people who like what they see and want to know more, not those who already know you and everything your art is about.'
You will be writing a 1-2 paragraph artist statement about your plan for your future body of work. You will add to the statement and revise it when the series is complete.

Consider: What do you plan to do and why is it interesting to you? Discuss your ideas and influences - artists, popular culture, personal experiences. Consider creativity - how will your project be original and yet also be understood by others? What do you imagine the end result will look like? How will you arrange the elements of your work to best convey your ideas?
