Alabama Charcoal will teach process over product, and career paths in the arts in order to debunk the myth of the “disenfranchised artist”, and provide an awareness of practice, exploration, and communication. The critique is central to Alabama Charcoal because it teaches students to be self-reflexive and engage in the process of art making. Alabama Charcoal Drawing class will use teacher demonstrations as an instructional tool. The majority of teaching will result from individual conversations with students about works in progress, and art history. Alabama Charcoal Portfolio will provide portfolio critiques by visiting artists, and personalized assignments to complete a competitive college portfolio. Students will also receive help with their college applications, scholarships and essays.
