You'll learn new ways to push your skills to the level by experimenting, taking risks, and deepening your research and ideas. You will explore contemporary artistic practices in a variety of media such as drawing, sculpture, installation, video, sound, photography, and performance, and more. The course will include online demonstrations geared to your passions, visiting artist presentations, online museum resources, as well as time for self-directed work and comprehensive faculty advising. You'll engage in discussions and critiques with a vibrant online community of other students from throughout the country and around the world, create portfolio-quality work, and receive comprehensive guidance on developing competitive applications for college admissions to art and design programs.
