Mixed Media 1.0–1.5
Prerequisite: 0–0.5 credit in Mixed Media
Students are exposed to the expressive possibilities of a variety of materials and techniques. Classes are devoted to both observational drawing and concept-based projects, using combined media approaches. Student drawings are often used as a springboard to explore and experiment with combinations of materials. Maintaining a sketchbook in which students develop their technical, conceptual, and imaginative skills is a strong component of this course. Class critiques will be ongoing throughout the year and combined with individual instruction and feedback.
Mixed Media 2.0–2.5
Prerequisite: 1.0–1.5 credits in Mixed Media
In the second year of this course, assignments are more concept based and require students to delve deeper into their ideas, further exploring a wide range of materials, techniques, and mixed media applications. At this level, students are also expected to continue expanding their skillset while forming a personal area of investigation. Class critiques enable students to develop the analytical ability to evaluate their work. Maintaining a sketchbook in which students hone their technical, conceptual, and imaginative skills is a strong component of this course.
