Perpich - Graham Judd - 3 hours
I started my first week at Perpich in Graham Judd's screenprinting classes. The students were working on creating stencils for multi-colored prints. They were eager to start printing but there wasn't time to start that day. I really enjoyed talking with students about their ideas and pushing them to create different things. I'm still getting the hang of how Perpich is run. Students have freedom and can go to computer labs or wherever they need during class time. It's very open although they are still expected to get things done.
There are two classes back to back and they have very different dynamic. Both students and the teacher lose energy at the end of the day, creating a different work ethic. It will be interesting to compare final products from the projects next week.
