Newton Art Association presents: Learning to Look / Looking to Learn – Critique and the Creative Process
March 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Based on years of teaching college art students, Ellen Schön’s passion for teaching critique as an essential part of the creative process has only grown. Join Schön as she guides us through her philosophy and essential practices of looking, describing, and responding to what a piece evokes. Schön characterizes the goal of critique as “learning to look and looking to learn.”
Ellen Schön is Adjunct Faculty in Fine Arts and former Ceramics Studio Supervisor Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, MA since 2002. She received a BA from Marlboro College (Ceramics and Perceptual Psychology) and MFA in Ceramics from Boston University’s Program in Artisanry.
Schön has organized and co-curated interdisciplinary group exhibitions in non-profit venues in Boston and internationally. She has fostered international artist collaboration and exchange through participation in artist symposia and residencies in eight countries.
Schön was a recipient of The Artist Foundation Fellowship from MA Council on Art and Humanities and past Artist Fellow at the St. Botolph Club in Boston. She is a member of the Boston Sculptors Gallery. Schön has exhibited widely in the US. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton, MA.
