ARTS 280 - Advanced Studio in Painting and Drawing

Advanced work in various media. Students will be encouraged to develop personal iconography and content, refine technique, and expand awareness of the relationship of their work to the larger world. This class will not be assignment-driven, but will enable the serious student to engage in focused work, serial studies, and autonomous investigation under the guidance of a faculty mentor Ms. Crocker or Ms. Sisson/Offered periodically. Fall 2010 Topic: The Expanded Mark: New Strategies in Drawing. How do we define a Mark? What purpose does it have and how do we make our mark in the world? These and other questions will be addressed through a series of drawing studies in which students create instances of gesture and meaning. Giving equal weight to both form and content, we will explore contemporary art practices by examining diverse themes such as time, scale, and improvisation. Non-traditional media, collaborative groups, and site-specific projects will be utilized.

Prerequisites: Pre-requisites ARTS 102  or 103 strongly recommended.

Faculty: Elli Crocker, M.F.A. Associate Professor of Studio Art Director, Studio Art Program, Toby Sisson, M.F.A.
