Experimental Image Making

This class will appeal to artists at any stage of their art-making; whether seeking to inject work with new ideas, or a beginner who wants to make a body of compelling images. Students will develop a new approach to producing images and exploring the role of free experimentation in artistic progression.

Through multiple projects, students in this class will explore new materials for mark-making, photography, and sculpture; misuse old tools and invent new techniques. Students will also spend time discussing their discoveries, successes, and new aesthetics.

At the end of the class, each student will have new work—striking, fascinating images that can live on their own and new processes to enrich their art and design work. / Material fee of $10 in addition to course tuition. / Open to students ages 18 and above. / View complete policies.

What to Bring: Pen or pencil; notebook or sketchbook; charged phone or camera.

What to Wear: Clothes appropriate for messy creativity.
