The portfolio is the single most important component of an art school application, and colleges across the nation are stepping up their requirements for admission. Most require several observational drawings, or drawings made from what we see, rather than from our imagination or a photograph.
The Master Critique class is a unique online opportunity to work with photographer and book artist Ricardo Bloch who lives and works in Paris.
For Ricardo, books can provide all makers an exploration of image, text, materials. He sees artist's books as a medium that allows for pushing boundaries and expanding the definition of what a book is whether it be graphic or conceptual, handmade or printed, narrative or stream-of-consciousness, Xeroxed or collaged, political or autobiographical, analog or digital works.
