Title: Process: Art Across Disciplines
Description: Over 4 weeks, students will work with sculpture, drawing, and painting in order to examine how the process of creating can be the catalyst for new work. This is an important idea in terms of learning to develop a process in one’s artistic practice but to also set up situations that would not have occurred except if the artist had set it up.
Goal: Students will have cursory overviews of the three processes of sculpture, drawing, and painting with an emphasis on creating a work of art that is inspired by the process of discovery and creation.
