ARTSTUDI 31X: New Art-Cinema for Non Majors

This is a studio course in contemporary cinema art, focusing on actionable, ultra-low budget methods for creating sprawling, proprietary cinematic expressions. Students will build familiarity with the myriad tools of and approaches to digital cinema creation and their practical use in works of art. Students will also be encouraged to conceive of cinema art expansively--as an opportunity to enclose, express and explore other forms of art: the written word, sound, sculpture, image-making and performance. We will think, talk, and work through the question of the role of art in cinema, and vice versa. We will create as a class no less than two short films. For each film, students will have the opportunity to reinvent their role (thinker-actor, writer-dancer, sound recordist, location scout, human sculpture, etc.). Together, we will smash the myth of the auteur as we hone ourselves into a finely ground machine for breakneck film-making.

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 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 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.
