The Image as Readymade: This introductory studio art course considers historical and contemporary visual media as a conceptual starting point for visual art projects. Working with photomontage, watercolor, gouache, ink, and some digital media, students will create a range of expressive work reflecting on the consumption of visual media within the artistic process. Students will learn technical skills associated with water based media and will create artworks that are both physical and digital. Methods of instruction include studio projects, critiques, class discussions, and written assignments.
