Learn about the vital role women have played as artists in Western society from the beginning of recorded history. Analyze the artist and her work as a distinct product of her specific time and as an exploration of the wide-ranging media she used, including clay, plant matter, embroidery, ceramics, oil paint and digital media.
Consider the concept of art as an agent for social change. To support this theory, we’ll review case studies of community/communal art movements through history from around the globe, across the United States and within our local community.
Let us introduce you to the concept of green art, or art that uses the philosophy of sustainability/environmental responsibility, as a matrix for production. Learn about international green artists and create your own green projects, using recycled materials or media that are environmentally friendly and/or made from the environment.
As a senior, you will select, research, produce and exhibit an individual project related to the goals of your specific major and individual interests. You’ll also work as a group to curate and prepare all aspects of the exhibition, from public relations to your artist’s opening.
