Learning Goals

  • To expand each student's understanding of the art making process through the experience of looking, discussing, and studying through physical processing (sketching, etc.).
  • To deepen possibilities for each individual studio practice by processing discoveries once back in the studio into a series of works.
  • To expand ways of seeing and the capacity for making into methods for the furthering of thought.
