Students were encouraged to write memories about their experiences with bikes. Mind mapping exercises, geographical maps, icons, and “doodles” about what they can recall were all introduced into the background of the works. Students looked at several contemporary artists who work with personal mapping as a method of communication.
Students had to select a figure from pop culture that they felt whose “15 minutes of fame” should be wrapped up. This beginning of the year assignment taught students about contemporary social statements that artists make and how to use technical skills such as value, 3D forms,and composition.
