ARTS 3326 The Figure in Costume: Monks, Soldiers & Hula Dancers (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This is an upper level studio class that assumes a working knowledge of art making techniques and some understanding of contemporary and historical (art) issues. Students work in the medium of their choice: painting, drawing, collage, photography, new media. We use the costumed figure as a source of image making and a vehicle for developing a personal vision. We will explore political, gender, religious and social issues, formal problems and personal expression. Models are available 2/3 of the time. The course comprises critiques, gallery visits, readings, slide lectures and lots of hands on studio work.
