Art in a Changing Landscape is designed for rising high school juniors and seniors to study art at a top tier liberal arts institution. In addition to creating artwork, the course will address topics such as studying art in college, how to create a portfolio, writing an artist statement, and exhibiting artwork.
How do you observe your surroundings? How do you focus your attention? What is your relationship with the natural environment? What can you say through the work you make? Art can foster a unique level of engagement with the places around us, and this can generate many diverse insights and applications.
This course is concentrated on drawing, building technical skills to better render what is observed. We will use drawing to record and think about what we see in our surrounding landscapes. Students will develop their own work, as well as hear how other artists incorporate close observation and foundational drawing skills in diverse artistic practices. They will draw in handmade sketchbooks and learn a basic bookbinding technique. In addition, the program will address topics such as studying art in college, how to create a portfolio, writing an artist statement, and exhibiting artwork.
