Topics in Studio Art: Information
ARST 323
Fall 2022 not offered

Artists in all media have historically responded to common, formal, and ideological motivations. These motivations encompass the very fabric of a liberal arts education. This course is intended to develop such a conversation among the various studio art disciplines as the foundation for making art. The course centers on a topic determined by the instructor. The class will function as a study group (of painters, sculptors, photographers, drawers, printmakers, architects and so on) that tackles the topic through the act of art-making. The topic will be introduced through readings and visual precedents, and through discussion we will determine means to respond as artists, each student in his or her own medium. These individual responses will then be analyzed in group critiques. Later in the semester, students will expand their investigations to include studio disciplines other than their own.
