Art and Critical Thinking 1001
This course will look beyond the tools to reshape your thinking and develop your critical thinking skills.
Develop your critical thinking skills to create art that goes beyond the visual
This course is for those looking to get a deeper insight into what is meant by ‘art’ and how to use art to direct attention to conceptual issues and push expectations. It’s for those looking to give their work meaning and for those looking to communicate their ideas clearly to their audience.
During this course, we will introduce concepts both old and new; we’ll look at the ‘sequence of art’ (the art cognitive hierarchy) and delve into the concepts of history and superstition. We will demonstrate how to communicate ideas through the visual medium, how to problem solve and critique to find out what is working well and what needs to be improved.
This course will be delivered as a series of live weekly online lessons, with each lesson accompanied by live demonstrations and examples. This will include paint-overs, views and discussions on the topic of each lesson.
