A course designed to introduce a variety of mediums and subject matter while improving your observational and rendering skills.
What we do:
We will work together in class on major projects. We will usually focus on a new medium and subject matter applying the skills learned through demonstrations and practice activities.
While most students don't think about writing in art, it truly is an important part of your art education. Through these assignments we will learn to see, understand and communicate about our work in a more thoughtful and critical way. The skills we develop in these assignments will help you in other classes and life in general.
You all have great ideas. This is your opportunity to explore what you are interested in. If you finish your work for me early, get out some materials and play. If you make something great share it with the group and inspire someone else. If it's not working, change it or just try something different. There won't be many times in your life that you have a room full of supplies along with the time and freedom to do just about anything you want.
