Collage: Colour & Composition (MMED184-36)

Collage is considered one of the most important and influential art forms of the 20th century. This course will reveal how collage offers unexpected and strikingly appropriate means of interpreting and processing our image and information laden world. With simple tools such as scissors, glue and found materials, students will find excitement and spontaneity in class projects, while learning essential foundation principles of composition and colour. Slide presentations and discussions will focus on contemporary studio practice as reflected in artists like Ellen Gallagher, Wangechi Mutu, Matthew Bourel and Kara Walker. Suitable for beginners.

Art Practice: Flora and Fauna (MMED240-36)

With a focus on the overarching theme of flora and fauna, this course provides a “sampler” of art materials, processes as well as professional practices such as learning to write an artist statement. The following approaches and media will be covered over the 12-week period: drawing, mixed media, chalk pastels, pencil crayon, collage, books and zines, and professional practices. Course includes a drawing en plein air session in Summit Park; drawing from your imagination using pastel and mixed media; layering pencil crayon to create detailed drawings of plants and animals; and using nature walks as inspiration to create a narrative in a book format. The course will conclude with writing about your work and doing a short presentation. We will be looking at the exhibition Forestrial Brain by Jim Holyoak and Matt Shane and other contemporary artists working with plants and animals as their inspiration. Suitable for beginners.

Quilting and Embroidery: Mapping and Memory (MMED243-36)

In this new craft-focused course, students will learn basic quilting, embroidery and cross stitch techniques with a focus on mapping and memory. Students will be given an opportunity to use digital applications to convert and manipulate their own images into stitching projects. The assignments will challenge students to develop work along the themes of mapping and memory and to draw from influences of contemporary artwork shown in class. Students will have opportunities to learn and develop skills in two-dimensional artwork, sculpture and book making. Previous experience with the craft skills and art mediums are not necessary; students will be supported and challenged at their skill level. Suitable for beginners.
