ARTSTUDI 115: Holt Visiting Artist: Jenifer Wofford

This course presents a unique opportunity for students to learn from and work closely with an important contemporary visiting artist, Jenifer Wofford. The collaborative framework of classes will have them discuss and reflect on relevant themes and issues of our time, selected by the visitor, around which they will conceptualize their projects and develop their practice over a period of ten weeks. Classes will be organized atelier-style, meaning they will be conducted live in the gallery space, which will serve as studio space and be open to public viewing, and they will offer students the experience of artistic growth through the process of working with the visitor.

ARTSTUDI 125: Thinking and Exploring Drawing

This class will provide students with different techniques, inspiration, and exercises to experiment Drawing as a tool for invention and discovery. Exploring materials such as charcoal, pastel, and ink, students will be involved in drawing exercises for the development of an individual language or research. We will approach drawing as a language with many uses and "speakers" instead of an established academic tool. Each week we will take inspiration from the drawings of filmmakers, animators, sculptors, illustrators, and artists to copy their styles as a way of learning, and exploring their language and thought. The classes will start with simple drawing exercises to warm up, then proceed to look at the drawings of different kinds of artists to copy the linework, thinking, and techniques in class as a way of exploring the different possibilities and materialities of the medium. No previous experience is required, open to all students, majors, and non-majors, at all skill levels.

ARTSTUDI 129: Augmented Reality: Placemaking and Storytelling

In this 4-unit course, students will explore the transformative potential of Augmented Reality (AR) as a medium for artistic expression and intervention in public spaces. The course delves into the world of interactive AR art, equipping students with the skills to create site-specific AR interventions that not only transform public spaces but also unlock historically important, unseen, or politically relevant layers of these spaces. The course covers storytelling techniques, audio recording and editing, and the use of Unity and other spatial tools for AR creation, equipping students with the skills to weave complex narratives into their AR projects. These narratives can bring to light the hidden histories, untold stories, and socio-political nuances of the chosen spaces, adding a depth of meaning and engagement to their work. Students will engage in a series of projects, culminating in a final project where they will create an interactive, immersive AR piece for a specific location on campus
