Studio Response, Art of Italy
While in Italy, students will collect images, postcards, sketch, including small three-dimensional studies, take notes, etc. These will then be used as source material for studio work upon return. The intention of the course is for each student to use the influence gained during study in Italy toward the furtherance of their own studio work.
- Walking tour through the Roman Forum and Capitline Museum
- Borghese Gardens overlooking city of Rome
- Florence Cathedral (il Duomo)
- Michelangelo's David
- Vatican and the Sistine Chapel
- 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.
