Arts
Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 3 hours

This course is a ‘hands on’ exploration of vernacular visual traditions existing within African American Culture. We will examine design choices/material processes used to define and describe the specificity of lived experience within African American culture. Our focus is upon elders within black communities and the stories that they tell through their work. These ‘folk artists’ function as influences upon contemporary African American artists ranging from Alison Saar, to Renee Stout. These vernacular traditions will serve as resources that extend our own working processes as we tell our own stories.
