Section Description

A major aspect in the art of making is the studio experience. In this course you will be introduced to contemporary art practices used in the making, presenting and analyzing of art works. You will have the opportunity to use a wide variety of media that may include: drawing, painting, color, photography, three-dimensional construction, digital imaging, sound, and/or video. We explore the relationships between methods and meanings in art making, the role of experiment, and the translation of experience into artwork. The course aims to promote the development of each student’s individual sensibilities with a foundation that encourages diverse and engaging practices. Reading, talking and looking are integral to art making and will be major themes of this course through gallery and museum exhibits, Visiting Artist lectures and informal discussions.
