Developing a Studio Practice Based in Painting
ARST 341
Fall 2023
Section: 01  

This course is intended for students with a solid foundation in painting or a related media concentration.

In this class, students will develop an artistic vision and studio practice while exploring open-ended prompts and engaging in conversations that unpack approaches and methods toward achieving artistic goals. Each individual will work uniquely in both concept and technique in order to become fluent and make conceptual and aesthetic choices that best convey their singular creative concerns. The knowledge and skills gained in ARST239 and/or other studio art courses will serve as the foundation for a deeper inquiry into how formal decisions about process inevitably impact expression and the reading of artworks. While analyzing differing approaches to solving the same problem, students will discover how their own practice can transform their relationship with others and the world.

Lectures and discussions will provide information and feedback on historical and contemporary issues, project proposals, goals for the work with respect to identifying an ideal audience, and the development of an artist's vision and statement.

Prerequisite: You must have taken any second level Art Studio course in any concentration.
