Experimental Production
0.50 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: This course requires a minimum prerequisite of 1.0 credits of First-Year studio curriculum.
Contemporary artists produce work using a wide range of processes. This course examines ideas about materials and approaches to them. Individual and group assignments focus students on the exploration of non-traditional materials and processes such as plumbing, pneumatics, dipping, coating, layering, electronics, forging, beading, beating, felting, knitting, mechanics, and so on. Working both outside and inside the conventions of traditional art practice develops students' understanding of how process can expand their ideas. Moreover, methods developed in this course will increase student confidence and flexibility in the production of their artwork.
Notes: This course will be taught through discipline-specific sections, ie, drawing, sculpture, photography, etc. Please refer to website for details.
