Dreamy Union square
This is a work of art that I have in my house that combines photograph and other mediums of art, so I think it is relevant to this class. (I don’t know the artist’s name, to give credit.)
Bobby Neel Adams

So because it’s my week to post, I thought I’d share something that some of you might have seen before. But it is really cool and definitely worth checking out if you haven’t. ( If you don’t have a facebook sorry). It’s a page called Humans of NewYork and this photographer captures people he sees on the streets. Either because they seem really interesting visually, or he thinks they might have a cool story to share. Anyways, it’s a great example of street photography.
We will be finishing up our Romare Bearden collages today then moving on to work on our portraiture work.
For class today, be sure to bring:
1. two pieces of patterned clothing
2. a camera with the card reader/USB cord (if you have one)

Class #2: Romare Bearden Collages — After exploring some master work by master collage artist, Romare Bearden, students will create collages inspired by Bearden using at least 12 self-created or found patterns/textures.
Learn more about Bearden at The Bearden Project | The Studio Museum
The Bearden Project brings together work by contemporary artists who have all been influenced by this twentieth-century master. Bearden was born in North Carolina and then spent much of his life in New York—Harlem in particular. Some of the artists in the exhibition, a sampling of the generations he affected, knew him personally. Others attended lectures and talks given by him when they were young artists just beginning their careers, and still others never met him in person, but flocked to exhibitions featuring his artworks when they were students. For many of the younger artists in this exhibition, Bearden was one of the first black artists they ever encountered.
Class #1: Pattern Palettes — After exploring the Mickalene Thomas Origin of the Universe exhibit and photographing attractive patterns, youth artists looked through magazines to create a 20 swatch pattern palette. Youth artists identified patterns and named these patterns.
