Collaboration Through a Printed Experience

Course No. PRI210/310/410  Credits: 3.0

Collaboration is defined by the interaction of two or more people. This studio course supports the student in the development of a body of work while offering an opportunity to experience collaboration by bringing together idea generation, image making and production. Through a series of projects students will use a variety of traditional and experimental processes to define the parameters of collaboration. Moving beyond the opening platform, students will redefine collaboration as they develop projects informed by course objectives through the inclusion of their personal aspirations. (Collaboration could suggest projects between students, artist and author, student and faculty, student and individual in the community, etc.) Note: This course is open to all, and fulfills an introductory, intermediate and advanced level elective course.

Collage + Assemblage

Course No. VAT212/312/412  Credits: 3.0

Collage and Assemblage are among the most radical innovations of the early 20th century and these forms remain relevant today as sources for innovation and experimentation. Each of these forms acknowledges the fracture of contemporary life and the ongoing need for new means of expression. This course will explore the relationship between collage and assemblage and various disciplines within the visual arts including Painting, Print, and Drawing. Students will learn to discern the significantly different effects and content of the wide range of strategies these approaches encompass. Through classroom discussion, lectures, readings, critiques and studio work students will explore the possibilities available through collage and assemblage. Emphasis will be given to the historical and contemporary studio practices associated with collage and assemblage. This course is open to all students from all majors. Students will be encouraged to apply their area of expertise to the studio work.
