ARST 273 - Intermediate Trust the Process: The Art of the Study in Formal and Conceptual Design

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
This course is an introduction to using (multiple) studies to develop the conceptual and formal qualities of a piece or series using a variety of media, techniques, and content. Projects emphasize conceptual development, problem solving, and composition, with an emphasis on individuality of response and invention through visual and material based research and experimentation. Students are encouraged to conceptualize all elements required to complete project assignments and find creative solutions; however, no finished pieces will be created. Lectures and discussions highlighting the conceptual design process of historical and contemporary artists will be presented to provide context. Field trip(s) required.

Prerequisites: two introductory courses in ARST.
This course is cross-listed with AAST-273
