Spring 2013 - Graduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
This course will be a studio-based creative workshop in which students will pursue their own creative work in a medium of their preference or expertise. An emphasis will be placed on developing an individual style with personal content using either painting, drawing, sculpture, ink jet prints, video, computer imaging or some hybrid forms. The student is expected to have had some prior experience in a medium of their choice (consult the instructor if unsure).
A focus on various topics of the current discourse in the visual arts will be investigated and discussed throughout the semester through readings of current art periodicals, films, and visual lectures. There will also be discussions from the assigned articles and texts, which cover current topics relating to content, theory, and studio practice of contemporary artists.
There will be periodic critiques of the students' art work along with inquiry into the formality of its making as well as the content expressed. Each student is encouraged to meet privately with the instructor to discuss more in depth his or her individual work.
