Core 3: Surface + Image

Course No. CDE 300  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Gretchen Goss

The second course in the core explores commonalities and differences in the “language of materials.” Emphasis is placed on visual and conceptual aspects of materials, and material process. This makes for interesting investigations and explorations within and across mediums. Historically materials and processes are connected with the evolution of function, and meaning. The class will explore inherent physical properties that may bring content and depth to ideas borne of the medium itself. Students continue the process of research and ideation using these common themes, and explore through experimentation. Each student’s individual voice begins to emerge. Fundamental techniques will be explored and practiced, stressing the practice of the maker. Idea-books/sketchbooks will continue to be worked on as an important part of the creative process. Offered spring.
