Since I started reading John Dewey’s Art as Experience late last year, it has altered my way to think about art and releasing many mental blocks on the subject. Although I had hoped to finish reading it before the new year I have three chapters left. Nonetheless, I already regard it as one of the most influential books I’ve read and reading it has made me look to the coming year with anticipation.
The beginning of the new year also begun the start of a new course, Drawing & Perception. After this first day I feel exhausted from the exercises in ”seeing”, in a good way. As a friend of mine responded when our teacher asked us how the first day had been: “Challenging”. No better way to sum it up and I hope the rest of the course continues in the same spirit.
