Instructor comments:

Explore the connection between making and meaning in this theme-based class. We will be exploring the creation of art through 2D and 3D modes, everyday materials and non-traditional techniques. Student projects are theme based and open media. Instructor introduces themes and guides each student through the design and creation of personally expressive works of art.

Tuesday class Zoom meetings introduce ideas, instructor demonstrations and class discussions. Thursday class Zoom meetings consist of short individual check-ins. Lectures are recorded and relevant videos and reference materials are posted and available in D2L.

Majority of supplies will be based on individual project scope. A small inexpensive set of supplies is avaiable through the Rock Creek Bookstore website.
