This studio course is designed for students who are interested in creating with both two and three dimensional techniques. Some of the media and tools used will be traditional such as ceramics and painting, yet the students will have the opportunity to expand into other media such as fibers, printmaking, glass etc. All projects will be created with the goal of the student leaving the class with a well-rounded, high-quality portfolio. Although this course will focus on creating art through multiple techniques, there will be investigations of historical and current art and artists. The student artists will gain a better understanding of themselves and art through creating, collaborating and critiquing.
