Here is some information about the inaugural Creative Direction Program lead by Michelle Mendlowitz:
Creative Directions 2016/17
Lead by Toronto based Artist and Educator, Michelle Mendlowitz. Participants of Creative Directions were encouraged to research ideas, explore materials and take creative risks during their eight meetings. Running from September 2016 to Fall 2017, Creative Directions began with four, full day, hands-on workshops with demonstrations and time for practice, skills development and feedback. The last four, full day, sessions were dedicated to group discussion and critiques lead by Michelle to develop individual ideas and personal aesthetics for the final group exhibition. During this entire process Michelle worked with participants to identify personal goals and needs to enhance their technical skills base, develop a sense of critical thinking, assist in creating an artist statement and source, develop and resolve new ideas.
