In Block 3 painting with Bill Colburn, students were tasked with creating a painting inspired by the human condition. Prior to this, they had done two smaller assignments painting hands and zoomed in parts of faces. Students posed one of their classmates to paint. It was the classes’ first time painting on a canvas, and they created their own by stretching and preparing them for painting. The entire assignment lasted about three weeks. Sarah Hasday-Erbsen ‘24 says “I decided I wanted to make it about how we see the cartoonish realities that we want to see, and how we choose what we want to see… not always reality.” These pieces are now on display in the library.
