RCARTS 288 — Beginning Drawing
Section 001, LAB

Instructor: Cressman,Joel L

WN 2007
Credits: 4
Reqs: CE

Drawing is the most basic of art skills and is at the core of the creative process. It promotes a deep respect for looking and thinking. Whether you are studying to be a visual artist, exploring an interest in art history or simply seeking to appreciate art, drawing can be an enriching experience giving one insight into the creative process and what artists do and have done over time. It is a common denominator for us all — at some point in our lives it came naturally. Introduction to Drawing aims to rediscover that natural impulse. We will explore traditional and contemporary approaches with an emphasis on eye/hand coordination and creative expression. Basic techniques and methods will be covered through work with still life, the figure and the imagination. The goal is to foster confidence and skill in understanding what we see and how to creatively transfer that understanding to the two-dimensional drawing surface. There is a studio lab fee.

RCARTS 289 — Ceramics
Section 001, LAB

Instructor: Dadey,Janet M

WN 2007
Credits: 4
Reqs: CE

This course presents basic problems in forming clay, throwing and handbuilding techniques, testing, preparing and applying glazes, stacking and firing kilns, and operating a ceramics studio. Students are required to learn the complete ceramic process, and the assumption of studio responsibilities and regular class attendance are mandatory. The theory, practice, and history of ceramics are integral parts of this study and are used to encourage individual sensitivity to the material. There will be a studio fee.

RCARTS 385 — Interdisciplinary Photographic Applications
Section 001, LAB

Instructor: Hannum,Michael B

WN 2007
Credits: 4

RCARTS 385 is an advanced photography course that addresses the need for individual, interdisciplinary projects using photographic materials and facilities. A series of advanced photographic assignments are presented which develop skills in using large format cameras and negatives, color print materials and studio lights. They can be modified to support independent study in which individuals develop their own set of interdisciplinary objects. The course is intended to meet both the need for second semester skill development in photography and the need to correlate those skills with a student's other academic interests. There will be a studio fee.

Advisory Prerequisite: RCARTS 285.

RCARTS 389 — Ceramics Theory and Criticism
Section 001, LAB


Instructor: Dadey,Janet M

WN 2007
Credits: 4
Reqs: CE

This upper-level ceramics course addresses advanced problems in ceramics production and studio art practice. While students in lower-level ceramics courses learn basic technical skills and aesthetic concepts, upper-level students work at more sophisticated levels of form and content. The course aims to develop the quality of students' work by addressing matters of form, concept, values, and technique. Classes are organized around completion and critique of four extended assignments, and feature preparatory reading and writing. Readings from journals, such as Ceramics, Art and Perception, and others will enhance our discussions and our understanding of the role of ceramics in twenty-first century art.

Advisory Prerequisite: RCARTS 289.
