Eric Hoover has students accepted at the following schools...
ASSESSMENT & DISCUSSION:
A series of timed drawing tasks that are designed to assess observational drawing skills, visual interpretation and image making strategies will be given during the first two weeks of class with a two-hour drawing assignment to be done independently at home.
Students will discuss their interests and goals with instructor.
CRITIQUE & EVALUATION:
Discussion about drawing tasks and strategies, critique, and state-of-the-art visual technology are valuable tools that will be utilized by the instructor to enhance learning.
A written report evaluating artistic skills with recommendations for continued improvement will be provided at the end of the course.
Schools vary as to their criteria for acceptance and scholarship. For most, the student’s portfolio has the highest priority. Other factors include grades, personal integrity and teacher and professional recommendations.
A written recommendation for acceptance and merit scholarship will be provided at the end of course.
Individual instruction begins with a critique of work done previously, followed by customized student assignments that are designed to meet the student where he/she is.
Students will eventually progress to completing artwork that may be included in a portfolio for acceptance to an accredited school of art.
There is a strong emphasis on developing observational drawing skills, composition, and personal expression.
