This course provides a laboratory to develop student artwork through critical thinking and research. Specifically, the course sets out to equip students with the necessary tools and understanding to carry out independent or collaborative research in relation to their art making. By developing partnerships with community organizations that have a need for visual representations related to their cause, we will work to fulfill their needs while simultaneously producing artwork that is meaningful to the student’s artistic practice, as well as socially relevant. All students are required to engage in community service and community service is an integral component of the course. Students must have completed a 1000 level course in studio art (ARST) and are expected to enter the class with an intermediate level of understanding of contemporary artistic practice.
