ARTSTUDI 145C: Introduction to Abstraction

This studio course will provide an introduction to abstract and non-objective painting and sculpture. Through a series of prompts and exercises, students will strengthen their understanding of composition, color, line, form, and material. Studio-based projects will draw upon the history of abstraction, as well as incorporate found objects and imagery to ground exploration in the immediate environment. As a class, we will consider the contemporary relevance of abstract and non-objective artworks. What does it mean to create a work of art today that is not figuratively legible? How is such work otherwise legible? Through technical exercises developed by Walter Gropius and Joseph Albers of the Bauhaus, students will develop foundational skills in composition and color theory. Experimentation, intuitive decision making, and developing one's own approach will be encouraged throughout.

Can mixed media art spark intersectional dialogue? How does combining disparate materials communicate radical messages to others? Through group discussions, readings, writing sessions, and critiques we will explore the topics of the body, race, gender, and land as they relate to art practice.

ARTSTUDI 147: Art Book Object (ARTSTUDI 247A)

This mixed introductory and upper level studio course explores contemporary aesthetic interpretations of the book as an art object.

The course familiarizes students with basic bookbinding processes and forms, as well as various modes of printing and production that facilitate limited artist editions. In addition to making books, we view numerous artists' books in the Bowes Art & Architecture Library collection as well as the collection of the instructor, and meet with practicing artists and book makers. Students create a number of small books, each focused on a particular process but using content of their choice. Upper level students propose and create a more fully evolved final project involving at least one bookbinding process independently researched in consultation with the instructor.
