Painting II: Shifting Landscapes of the Mind, Nature, and History|
Since the beginning of human history, people have created art to document events in nature and society, and to convey ideas and emotions as they responded to shifting conditions in the world, be they man-made or natural. Before written language, visual expressions of morality, concepts of the future, and abstract thought in the sciences and religion were represented in painting. Whenever dramatic events impacted society, painting documented and commented on them. In this class, in which the skills and knowledge gained in ARST239 will serve as the foundation, students will be challenged to become technically proficient while they explore the topic of shifting landscapes or the shifting viewpoints of the mind, history, and nature. The prompts and concerns addressed in this course allow for any formal, conceptual, or stylistic method to resolve them. Each student will work uniquely in both concept and technique in order to become fluent with the medium and make aesthetic choices that best convey their ideas about and responses to each prompt. Lectures and class discussions provide information and feedback about historical and contemporary issues and the plans for each project. Individual and group critiques will complement class work.
