With a two-week break in the middle, the Spring semester at Bowdoin can feel more like two semesters than one, but never more so than this year. Before Spring Break, working together in the studio, the class did seven weeks of Life Drawing, while also pursuing a second project in Aleatory Drawing (from the Latin word for a roll of the dice).
While it was always the plan for the last six weeks of the semester to be dedicated to an independent, self-designed Final Project, the projects became more independent than expected as each of us moved to separate living and work spaces off campus, from New England to California; and eventually Texas, Wyoming, and China.
In the Bowdoin visual arts program it’s customary to wrap up the semester with a department-wide Open Studio exhibition. Since that’s not possible this year, we’re presenting the Drawing II show here on line, including all three chapters of the course.
If you like what you see, or would like to learn more, by all means let us know.
We would also like to extend our thanks to Information Technology, and especially David Israel for helping make this exhibition a reality.
