For Mathew Bourbon’s second class with the T/AP, the students were tasked with another painting assignment. The teens’ homework from last class was to bring one visual resource from home—it could be anything they are interested in. Once we spoke about the students’ images, they were given more free time in the galleries to collect information. Limiting themselves to the David Bates exhibition, each student had to choose one element that they liked about his paintings; it could be the color, the marks, the texture, the composition, or any other element that caught their attention. Once each student chose an aspect of the work that interested them, they made several drawings about that feature. These drawing were considered preparatory drawings. At that point, the students headed to the studio and created paintings that combined their image from home with their preparatory drawings from the David Bates exhibition. The results were fantastic!
