Section Description

Section Description Artists throughout history have used their studio practice to engage with and respond to the socio-cultural events of their time. Through multiple visual mediums, artists help us to make sense of the world and give us a marker to understand history. In this class, we will look into the work of artists throughout the late 20th and early 21st centuries to gain a broad perspective of artists and their work, and through drawing, painting, and multi-media creations, students will develop their own connections and artwork in response.

Section Expectation

Section Expectations This course will expand students understanding of studio arts practice and introduce concepts of interdisciplinary art making.
