Student Uprising

Installation of student work hung at midterm Summer 2008 Art Institute of Austin - Honoria Starbuck's Observational Drawing Class
Observational Drawing Summer 2008 Mid-Term Hall Exhibition

My students presented their three strongest drawings and an artist statement then selected and hung their work in the hallway while I graded their sketchbooks in the room.  i gave them full artistic freedom to design the hall installation.  Instead of the formal title I suggested they created a sign that says "Honoria's Gemz"  they also hung an informal arrangement on a single backing and drew frames around the unmatted drawings.  My classes have definitely bonded and are looking toward a strong second half of the semester.
