Art Workshop 105

In this advanced studio arts course, students will explore the use and combination of materials from various media in which they already have training—such as drawing, painting, photography, digital imaging, and printmaking—to create new art forms that highlight each discipline's strengths. The goal is to push artists further along in their work and to deepen their artistic vision. The course will combine lecture, critique, and studio time. Students will work on three or four projects throughout the course.

Prerequisite: Students must have taken at least one or two courses in drawing, painting, photography, printing, sumi-e, or other media, or have previous equivalent experience. This course will not introduce students to new techniques; rather, it will allow students to explore what can be done with the techniques in which they are already fluent.

Course tuition: $2022. Course fee: $115.

Enrollment is limited to 14 students. This course is not open to auditors.

Keiji Shinohara, a master Ukiyo-e woodcut printmaker, is artist in residence in art and East Asian studies. His work has been exhibited at the Library of Congress, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Worcester Museum of Art, the Asia Society, and the Smithsonian. He is known for highly sculptural landscape prints, which speak to the spirit of Ukiyo-e in a modern voice. His Sumi-e paintings were featured in the collaborative artists' book, The Language of Her Body, with photos by Derek Dudek, fragments of text by Amy Bloom, and typography by Robin Price.
