ART 010, Interdisciplinary Exploration For Making Fictional Worlds, Flying Machines, and Shaking Things Up
Whether you aspire to be an engineer, doctor, or astronaut, it can still be vital to dream and invent―by drawing and sculpting in order to generate ideas and develop strategies for learning how to make something out of nothing. In this course, students consider how artists and inventors have used seemingly unrelated materials and content in order to activate creative thinking and generative activity. Students engage in a wide variety of interdisciplinary activities such as drawing, sculpting, painting, printing, photography, reprographics, instrument-building and sound broadcasting. This course emphasizes experimenting with strategies for generating ideas, images and objects, and employs broad modes of creating, including elements of chance, spontaneity, collaborating communally, and synthesizing disparate elements into the process of making.
Enrollment limited to first-year students. Preregistration required; see under First-Year Seminar Program.
