Creative Processes and Experimental Materials

During this course, students will be pushed out of their comfort zone to free their approach to art making and allow themselves more room for creativity. This course is designed for students who want to move into a more creative headspace in their art practice. The processes and materials in this course will walk the line between 2D and 3D work, combining drawing and painting with non-traditional materials such as plaster and textile. While some drawing or painting experience is recommended, beginners would also benefit from this course. 

Each session will begin with drawing exercises as warm ups designed to promote a creative mindset. The exercises and projects in this course will be designed in such a way that being a perfectionist will not be an option. Students will not only learn to embrace the “mistakes” which are essential to the creative process, but also learn that creativity can’t be planned and develop techniques for pushing their artwork to the next level through experimentation.
