FIFTY FACESJacob Kincheloe8 sessions >> Wednesdays, February 27- April 24(No class March 20)6:30–9:30pm, Studio 13, $385
Over eight weeks, using in and out-of-class work time, students will complete a series of 50 drawings of heads (human, animal, fantastical—the sky's the limit). The goal is to move towards technical mastery through practice and repetition. Weekly slideshows, readings, and classroom discussions will explore historical and contemporary approaches to portraiture and picturing the body, as well as the nature of multiplicity and working in series. This is an ideal course for students seeking to grow their observational drawing skills while producing an impressive body of portrait work.
_________________Jacob Kincheloe uses drawing to explore desire and the curious nature of the physical body. His work engages elements of historical painting and photography, restaging and recontextualizing them through the subtle process of graphite drawing. Kincheloe’s detailed drawings express the struggle and pleasure of inhabiting a desiring body, and examine the peculiar performance of identity.
He is a recent recipient of the Montague Travel Grant, the William R. Kenan Fellowship, and two teaching fellowships at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston
