Experimental Drawing and Painting

Designed for students who want to explore and experiment with contemporary and interdisciplinary processes in drawing and painting, while developing a daily artistic practice to sustain creativity. Challenge concepts of traditional drawing and painting and work outside your comfort zone, inspired by contemporary artists who confront and play with conventional constructs in their creative process. Explore a variety of experimental techniques and address key concepts, including contemporaneity; interdisciplinary methodology; exploration and experimentation; challenge and failure; perceptions and senses; and individuality and collaboration. This course will examine the work of Sharon Loudon, Phil Hansen, Lee Bontecue, Faheem Majeed, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, and Lee Blalock, among others.

Note: This online course is offered in a one-week intensive format. Live sessions daily will be combined with independent work time. The Canvas learning management system and Zoom video conferencing platform will be used to access course content and communicate with the instructor and peers.
