ART 101 Visual Art and Creative Thinking
Tues./Thurs. 9:30am – 10:50am
Autumn 2020 - This course will be taught remotely online via Zoom
This course will explore how we observe and interpret our visual world. We will examine a variety of working methods to translate concepts into creative solutions. Students will be introduced to art and design terminology, techniques and analysis. Assignments include short drawing, sculpting, writing, photography, design, and critical thinking exercises as well as lectures by visiting arts professionals and group activities. This is a great orientation to the opportunities available for students considering a major or minor in Art, Art History or Design, or as an elective for those pursuing other majors who want to gain more art-making and art-appreciation skills.
Commitment to Positive Learning
Our classroom environment should be mutually respectful and inclusive of all students. Diversity of all kinds is essential to a thriving creative and critical environment. Thoughtful questions and debate are encouraged. Please be responsible and act with accountability toward each other.
