Unconventional Drawing

The Convention of Unconventional Drawing
The first half of this course will be a traditional life drawing class, where observational and drafting skills can be honed. We will capture gestures, contours, and shadows of a life model, presented in both 3-D and 2-D environments. In the second half, we will incorporate our initial drawings with appropriated images, and dive into a rigorous process of collage, tracing, scanning, and basic Photoshop and digital editing, in an attempt to understand how today's technology can help us to better represent our 3-D world in the confines of 2-D space. (This course can serve as a substitute for the ART 0159 prerequisite for upper level studio art courses). This course is not open to students who have taken ART 0159. 6 hrs. lect., lab

Sculptural Architecture

Sculptural Architecture
Architecture is a projection of our dreams as well as a practical necessity. In this course we will explore making architecture as imaginative sculpture. Working on a table-top scale, we will draw, build, and digitally photograph structures confronting challenges of site, population, and aesthetics. Specific and useful skills, such as hand and power tool operation, will be taught. Students will learn how to make sophisticated three-dimensional forms using foam-core, balsa, mahagony, and other woods. In addition, unusual processes of flame-worked and fused glass will be introduced. 6 hrs lect/lab

The Landscape Re-Imagined
Painting/Drawing/Photog/Glass

The Landscape Re-Imagined: Painting, Drawing, Photography, and Glass
In this course we will explore various art-making methods to image the campus landscape and architecture. We will use oil paint, magic marker, spray paint, digital photography, and sculptural glass in a multi-disciplinary approach to picture-making. New technical processes will be taught, with a goal of making meaningful contemporary images. This class will not be based on an “assignment driven” structure, but will involve a collaborative studio workshop, close individual instruction, and personal/formal artistic development.

Sculpture I

Sculpture I - Communicating in Three-Dimensions
This course is designed to further an investigation into the techniques and principles of three-dimensional art. Project objectives are designed to provide new problems and techniques to provoke creative solutions and visions. We will experiment with a number of materials and concepts, from wood-bending and welding to performance and installation. Each project's success will rely heavily on the research and commitment students bring to the creative process. Students will be expected to communicate the process and concept behind each artwork visually, orally, and in writing.
