Explores how art is made in specified areas of inquiry, genre, or media. Arts may include visual, written, or performance arts, or a combination of these.
An intermediate level studio workshop for the creation of paintings and hybrid works using water-based paint and other materials. There will be options for painting, the use of paint with mixed media, and the use of traditional and non-traditional materials with paint. Work will emphasize both visual skills and concept, supplemented with readings about conceptual content, as well as writing about your work. Experimentation will be encouraged.
