What you'll learn in this crafts class:

There are so many options available to artists today, blending traditional and digital processes, public and private works, and individual and collaborative practices. This course is designed for students who want to explore some of these contemporary artist materials and techniques. Students are exposed to what is happening right now in the art world and are able to experiment with a variety of methods, which may include drawing, sculpture, image transfer, collage, laser cutting, and/or 3D printing. 

The course starts out with several smaller exercises and demos combined with discussion to help students develop a larger final project that reflects their individual interests. Classes are supplemented with presentations of current art concepts and issues and the work of significant contemporary artists. 

This is a great course for freshman and sophomores, or those new to art making.
