ARTSTUDI 10A: Digital Workshop for Artists

This one-unit pass/fail introductory workshop class is designed for students who are new to working with code and electronics, and will give them the technical background necessary to feel comfortable in digital studio classes such as Embodied Interfaces (162), Drawing with Code (163), Making it With Arduino (130), and other Emerging Media courses. By teaching introductory electronics and programming concepts in a step-by-step, hands-on manner with a focus on creative practice, this workshop class provides an accessible introduction to using electronics in students' own artistic endeavors. Students will learn to program LED strips, read sensors with Arduino, start to code in Processing, and become familiar with methods for connecting all three. Through guided tutorials and creative exploration in class, students will learn a basic skillset for creative practice using electronics and software interfaces, with a focus on skills students can use in their work in future classes. No technical experience required.

ARTSTUDI 19N: An Artist's Life: Diverse Voices and Changing Contexts

This course is designed for students considering an Art Practice minor or major. In this course, students gain confidence and experience connecting to their artistic voices as we explore the myriad possible career paths artists take to build sustainable careers. The course consists of a series of studio projects, each centered around a different artist whose career and art practice we study. The example artists will be primarily artists of color, or artists from communities which are underrepresented in the art world, with practices and careers ranging from the conventional to the more unusual. The goal of these artist selections is to model the possibilities of an art career for students who do not easily see themselves well represented in the mainstream art world, while also broadening all students¿ understanding of the many different methods for making work and practicing as an artist today.

ARTSTUDI 22AX: Drawing and Creative Writing

Drawing and Creative Writing is a dynamic mix of hands-on drawing studio time and guided writing assignments. This hybrid studio course invites students to experience the perceptual power of drawing and the written word in concert. Drawing and writing are at the roots of most works of art. An intensive practice of these disciplines gives us a marvelous, meditative place from which to learn about the art one can make, uniquely, and about the wisdom of "beginner's mind." This course is open to everyone. We will get our hands dirty with the ABCs of drawing, look closely into the visual dimensions of language, make up semiotic games, word-shapes, and in general use drawing to experiment with inventive tensions between text and image. What does it mean to draw with the eyes of a writer? Or to write like an artist? We will see that our work can be both an artifact and a portal that leads to transformative chains of associations. Here are key tools for visual thinking and problem solving and growing our imagination. And as we play with poem-pictures and word-works and images of writing as we interrogate their cross-pollinations, purposes, possibilities our aim will also be to repair our ability to pay sustained attention. So we'll work to expand our awareness, see with fresh eyes, challenge stereotypes, allow wild ideas to flow, and come into direct contact with surprising art. We will look at art history as artists.

ARTSTUDI 23AX: Drawing

Two fun activities on campus during the summer are drawing in the studio and being outdoors. In this Arts Intensive Drawing class students will do both. The course will revolve around composition and layout, expressive mark-making, and basic drawing techniques. Mainly using pencil and charcoal as our primary medium, this class will explore dynamic compositions found in nature, gestural figure drawing, and portraiture. Students will also have the opportunity to work on quick and in-depth drawings, gaining a more excellent working knowledge of line, shape, perspective, proportion, volume, and composition. On-campus drawing-based visits will include the Anderson Collection and Cactus Garden. An off-campus docent-led tour at the San Jose Museum of Modern Art will provide students the historical awareness of artists who have worked in this manner. The whole class is meant to be an experimental lab while allowing students to gain a rigorous foundation in drawing. Honing individual style is encouraged!

ARTSTUDI 123I: Undergraduate Seminar in Composition: Music, Art, and Intermedia (MUSIC 123I)

How do music and art relate? How does one speak for, with, the other? In the past century, Western visual art turned towards abstraction and time-based works. Techniques and processes for interaction between image and sound expanded dramatically. What better place to learn about them than the Anderson Collection? Through students' own visual and aural creations, we will explore and share individual approaches to time, symbol, memory, and meaning. Previous experience in music composition is welcome but not required. This course must be taken for a minimum of 3 units and a letter grade to be eligible for Ways-AII credit.
