This is an entry-level arts program for freshmen who are interested in exploring what it means to make art and to be an artist. It is designed for those to whom art is entirely foreign--but who are, nonetheless, interested in learning what it's all about--as well as for those who have already taken art courses and feel a strong affinity for it.
The program will have three components: studio art, art history and literature. The studio component of the program will cover basic drawing skills, both of still lives and the human figure. Art history will consist of an introduction to Western art, and will have connections with the literature that we read. Our books may include Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut, My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok, Concerning the Spiritual in Art by Wassily Kandinsky, Ways of Seeing by John Berger, Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood, and Seeing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees by Robert Irwin.
