On Tuesday, November 8, artist, Steffen Kugel visited the class via Skype from Stuttgart, Germany. Kugel presented a lecture about the process of painting, tracing the trajectory of his own development. Students were asked to engage in a similar process, creating abstract compositions, over-painting their compositions and repeating this process until a point of frequential satisfaction had been achieved. The following are images of the various stages of the students’ projects along with documentation of Kugel’s lecture:
