Section Description

Perspectives on Making is an introduction to contemporary art practice. We will explore the making, presenting and analyzing of art works in a variety of media and formats. This may include: drawing, three-dimensional construction, collage, photography, digital arts, and painting. The work produced within this class demonstrates how hands-on creation, talking, and looking are integral to making. Basic skills essential to upper level department offerings will be covered. Students will be given hands on training in our wood and welding facilities. Part of the course structure will include critiques in which students will be asked to discuss each other’s projects in conjunction with presenting the their own work.

Section Expectation

Students should be invested in approaching the ideas and methods that are inherent to making artwork. No prior experience in art making is required. This is a foundation level class, and basic skills essential to upper level department offerings will be covered. The lab fee for the class covers most of the materials we will be using.


Evaluation: Completion of assigned projects, participation in critiques, attendance, documentation and presentation of projects.
