March’s Topic: Working from 2-D references, the art of creating your own artistic composition from one or more references. Students will need to bring multiple 2-D references that are related in style and/or subject. It is encouraged but not required for most of the references you bring to be your own. This class will also address the taboo of artistic borrowing.
