F455i Writing and Practice: Art-ing Across Genres — ONLINE
September 27 — November 08, 2021 (no class October 18th)
Monday, 6-7:30pm (Eastern/US)
6 Weeks / 6 Sessions / 375$
Working primarily with text, we will collectively push beyond recalling our memories by blending them with poetic devices to create prose and formatted poems. We’ll discover inventive ways to achieve vivid storytelling, personal archiving, and limitless point of view while creating contemporary forms of prose, poetry and hybrid pieces. Participants will complete class with one completed lengthy piece and two shorter pieces as a springboard for works in progress and process beyond class. We’ll also discuss the ways in which these pieces can be transformed into art installations and write first drafts of artist statements and project descriptions. Participants will actively build community in studioELL’s Online Studio, by discussing weekly writing assignments and giving and receiving positive and constructive feedback to the Art-ing Across Genres cohort.
This course will include synchronous and asynchronous sessions. Synchronous sessions will meet on Mondays via Zoom: September 27th, October 11th, November 1st and November 8th, from 6-7:30p (Eastern/US). All asynchronous sessions will post on Mondays.

6 Weeks / 6 Sessions / 375$
Professor Natalia De Campos
Develop a specific project that you are working on or a new one you want to initiate, or a body of work, while also reflecting on its relationship with space and/or a community.
This practice-based course is intended for artists who want to focus studio time on a specific project with access to one-on-one critiques with the instructor as well as peer discussions in the Online Studio. You may have an ongoing project or you may start a new one. In any case, come ready to be hands-on, spend dedicated time on your project/s, and further develop it during these 6 weeks.
Throughout the development of your project — during conversations, research and implementation — we will discuss your decisions and when/how to adapt them along the way. What tools, realization ideas, obstacles and gifts, and documentation will you choose? The online studio will allow enrolled artists to come together and share their experiences, get feedback from your instructor and peers.
This course will include synchronous and asynchronous sessions. Synchronous sessions will meet on Tuesdays from 2-3.30pm (Eastern/US) via Zoom: October 5th, October 26th and November 2nd. The first session will be asynchronous, as an initial interview and digital studio visit between the instructor and each artist. Asynchronous course sessions will post weekly on Tuesdays and will offer an opportunity to further develop your project while still staying tuned in to your peers and instructor, through weekly prompts and online feedback.
All welcome, regardless of the level of education or career stage. Students and individuals transitioning to new levels of art practice are highly encouraged and welcome.
