SART 2800 - Extended Practices I F,W (0-6) [0.50]

This course introduces contemporary studio concerns with emphasis on an interdisciplinary approach to art production. Students will be actively engaged in exploring a variety of skills, materials and ideas including video, audio, artist multiples, site work and concept art. These skill sets provide a solid base for upper level courses, where thematic projects encourage students to choose the most appropriate medium for their approach beyond a singular discipline or particular medium.

Comment :
I liked the content of the course. You will learn to edit video and sound using Mac's, but almost by yourself. This is hard and time consuming. Anyway, you learn a lot about process, conceptual art... and thinking!!! I didn't like the professor, I found her a little rude and I didn't like how she teachs. A lot of watching other artists work, but a little feedback. But I think the course is necessary for any artist who wants to do contemporary installations and so on.

I really enjoyed this course and has challenged me to think conceptually about my ideas and changed the way I think about art. Anyone in the studio art program should definitely take this course because really it was a lot of fun! Don't think that this course is all about video art, it isn't and has opened doors to other possibilities of what art can be.
