Topics 2D: “Materials and Meaning”:

PUFA 3220 (CRN: 2068)

Thursdays 9:00am – 2:40pm

This course is designed for broad based physical exploration and experimentation in the realm of 2D. Examples of processes that can be used are painting, knitting, drawing, quilting, photography, posters, printmaking, digital prints, stencils etc.. The question of how ideas and materiality are married in works of art will be explored. Students will take their interest/instincts in certain areas of content and explore different ways that it can become physically manifest. Group discussions will occur both when looking at work together as well as separate from works of art on compelling topics. Visits to galleries, museums and an artist’s studio will also take place.
