The emphasis of this course will be on content, craftsmanship and the development of a personal point of view as an image-maker. Projects are concept driven and students are expected to explore individual approaches to the medium based on personal interests, creative influences and individual experimentation. Each student will develop an individual project that will extend throughout the semester and be presented as a cohesive portfolio of work along with an artist’s statement. Prerequisite: ART 161.
