Phew! What a day! EiA 2010 traveled to the heart of Washington D.C. to explore the Library of Congress, the nation's oldest federal cultural institution. The students got a chance to explore the grand lobby of the Library of Congress and really analyze and document some its most beautiful and ornate details through sketching.
After an intense session of sketching, the students returned to studio to put the finishing touches on the collages that they have been working on all week. Today was the student's first big presentation for a group of jurors. The students were broken up into groups of 2 or 3 and develop 2 collages that relate to each other, explore the the tension between man-made objects and nature, and work in their own concept at the same time! It has only been 4 days and the students are already doing a fantastic job.
