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.

Urban Geography as Art (MMED242-36)

The first part of this course uses photography as a way to navigate and consider urban geography, the study of the built environment and infrastructures beneath. Through a series of walking and observation exercises, students re-choreograph and consider the lines and paths of their surroundings. The second half of the course challenges when a photo is finished or just begun. Students learn about the properties and potentials of photo paper as a substrate and will experiment with mark making and drawing on top of photo prints. Students will deconstruct, disassemble and rebuild the image with layers and transfers of line and mark. The course is about expanded ways of seeing and reconsidering what’s been nearby and around you all along. Course will cover a roster of contemporary mixed media artists and collectives who use photography, drawing and alternative processes in their practices.
