ARTH 130 Art and Sustainability
This course promotes themes of sustainability and social engagement as the catalyst for artmaking. Primarily investigated through the design and construction of sculptures, installation art or other creative acts, students will explore creative practices exemplified by land art, social practice art, collaborative art, and social sculpture, among others.
ARTH 360 Explorations Materials & Space
Students will explore a variety of artistic materials and processes with an emphasis on activating three-dimensional spaces. The exploration of forms and repetitive systems will be combined with introductory exposure to concepts of site-specific artworks, also known as installation art. Students will have the opportunity to work both independently and collaboratively throughout the semester. In addition to learning about materials and techniques, this course is meant to encourage critical analysis and abstract reasoning while underscoring the interdisciplinary connections between the arts with the breadth of college offerings in the humanities and sciences.
