Extended Practices 1

This course is designed as a laboratory for experimentation where students will be actively engaged in exploring a variety of methodologies, ideas, and technical skills for contemporary art making.

The studio assignments and readings/podcasts are designed to provide an introductory understanding of formative movements and methodologies of contemporary art, while encouraging a playful uninhibited working process.

Skills in a variety of media will be investigated: video, audio, artists multiples, using everyday objects and actions, alongside experimental and conceptual methodologies.

Participation in all studio activities and discussions is critical to learning and producing successful interpretations of assignments.

NOTE: This is a 0.5 credit course. Each week, students are expected to spend approximately 4 – 6 hours outside of class on related course work.
