ART2042A/ART2042B 2D Studio Art 1A

0.5 credit per semester

Students will develop observational drawing and rendering skills, while exploring a variety of media, tools, and techniques. In addition to drawing, students will have the opportunity to create works of art using conventional and contemporary two-dimensional studio media (e.g., painting, printmaking, collage). Creative problem-solving skills are developed as students discover how formal qualities and compositional devices are used to make aesthetic choices in artwork that communicates narrative. Writing, academic language, and critical-thinking skills are developed through artist statements, critiques, and the close reading of artworks as text.
