Thank you to this year’s participating organizations and individuals who volunteered their time toward making the Camp happen, and the biggest thank you to all the students and families who joined us!
We've done a lot of drawing over the last few weeks, but what we love so much about drawing is the limitless potential for this medium! In the process of exploring, an artist might dedicate hours and hours to play. Play, you say? Yes, play! Playing with materials and mark making, and discovering all the amazing ways you can use your drawing tools, opens up new modes of expression. Yearning to make a drawing that expresses chaos? What if the best way to make this drawing is with your toes! Curious to express tranquility? Perhaps exploring the various marks your Sharpie can make will lead you to the best mark to express that! Once again, we hope you get silly with this exercise; art can be serious but it can also be full of serious humor.
Currently installed, Barnett Newman’s Notes (I–XII) (1968), a portfolio of seventeen etchings and aquatints, are also composed of variations within a set form. The portfolio of prints was a gift from trustee Annalee Newman after her husband’s death, and it was a goal of Judd’s to permanently display Newman’s works on paper in a small building at Chinati.
