ARTSTUDI 13BX: Narrative Painting For Non-Majors

This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of painting using acrylic paints, while simultaneously examining the narrative in visual art. Content for this course will be centered on how human experience is remembered and transformed through self-reflexive, experiential learning that connects our artwork to our personal lives. Formal issues will include the use of color, paint handling, value, and composition. Students will become familiar with the materials through hands-on demonstrations, discussions of historical context for the medium, and in-class critiques. We will also discuss surface preparation, clean-up, and safety. Slide lectures, readings, and a visit to the Cantor museum will enhance studio work time. Drawing background preferred but not required.

ARTSTUDI 10AX: Filmmaking

Production skills and project development in documentary filmmaking. The fundamentals of filmmaking using digital video production techniques focused on documentary storytelling. Shooting in mini-DV format and editing with Final Cut Pro software, students actualize their ideas in an audiovisual medium from conceptualization through post-production and exhhibition.

ARTSTUDI 11A: Drawing: Means & Alternate Means

The first half of the quarter students explore more traditional ways of drawing(still life,models,etc..) to develop a hand/eye relationship. The class will focus on seeing and documenting what is in front of them. The second half of the quarter expands into using alternative means of mark making to deconstruct and re-construct ideas learned in the first half of the quarter. String, tape, body parts and shadows are all fair game. This will be a lively class. The students are graded on their attendance, participation, weekly assignments and one final assignment consisting of two finished works, one being traditional, the other experimental.

ARTSTUDI 11AX: Digital Art and Design in Practice

Hands-on exploration of art and design using digital tools. Overview of contemporary digital art and design including fine art, graphic design, film, and animation. Analysis of new work in these areas and visits to Bay Area production and artist studios. Demos will focus on 2D and time-based techniques, but students interested in procedural or 3D computer graphic are welcome. Students will complete a multi-part visual project to be included in a final exhibit.

ARTSTUDI 12AX: Drawing Intensive: Revisiting Nature

As increasing technological advances can further separate us from direct impressions of nature, this class is designed to reconnect and enhance our relationship to the natural world and our surrounding environment. To do this we will develop visual skills and critical thinking through careful observation and classical drawing techniques.nInspired by Stanford's natural and manicured landscapes, students will enjoy the great outdoors while learning elements of perspective, composition, light, and form. Students will learn about master landscape artists, investigate the built and natural environment of the campus, and experiment with various drawing techniques, mediums, and styles.

ARTSTUDI 130: Interactive Art: Making it with Arduino

Students use electronics and software to create kinetic and interactive elements in artwork. No prior knowledge of electronics or software is required. Students learn to program the Arduino, a small easy-to-use microprocessor control unit ( see http://www.arduino.cc/ ). Learn to connect various sensors such as light, motion, sound and touch and use them to control software. Learn to interface actuators like motors, lights and solenoids to create movement. Learn to connect the Arduino to theMAX/MSP/Jitter programming environment to create media-intensive video and audio environments. Explore the social dimensions of electronic art. (lower level)

ARTSTUDI 131: Sound Art I (MUSIC 154A)

Acoustic, digital and analog approaches to sound art. Familiarization with techniques of listening, recording, digital processing and production. Required listening and readings in the history and contemporary practice of sound art. (lower level)
| UG Reqs: GER:DB-Hum, WAY-CE

ARTSTUDI 13A: Fundamentals of Oil Painting

This course is an introduction to oil painting. Students concentrate primarily on the technical aspects of the medium (i.e. how to paint as opposed to what to paint.) We examine color: how to mix it, how it establishes spatial relationships, light, and shadow. The class progresses through a series of problems designed to develop a sensitivity to paint application and surface quality; as well as to value, composition, volume, light, and space as the necessary elements of recreating perceptual experience. By the end of the course, students are able to apply some sophisticated techniques to visual problem solving. The aim of the course is to demonstrate the mechanical structure of oil painting.

ARTSTUDI 13AX: Photography

This hands-on course in photography will emphasize the techniques, aesthetics, and conceptual considerations of traditional black and white photography. Students will also explore photography's history and applications as an expressive tool, with the power to communicate ideas and move the viewer.nnThroughout the course, students will master the use of their own manual 35mm camera and process the film themselves in our lab. They will also learn the techniques needed to make quality black and white prints in the darkroom. Students will coordinate an exhibition and present their finest work in a professional manner.

ARTSTUDI 14: Drawing for Non-Majors

Functional anatomy and perspective as they apply to problems of drawing the form in space. Individual and group instruction as students work from still life set-ups, nature, and the model. Emphasis is on the development of critical skills and perceptual drawing techniques for those with little or no previous experience with graphite, charcoal, conte, and inks. Lectures alternate with studio work
