Art and Critical Thinking 1001
This course will look beyond the tools to reshape your thinking and develop your problem solving skills.
Develop your critical thinking skills to create art that goes beyond the visual
Why for? Introduce what is meant by art. Direct attention to conceptual issues and expectations. Introduce the basic new concepts and the sequence of art (or the art cognitive hierarchy). Give a basic idea of history, and superstition. Introduce the idea of demonstration and communication of ideas (not mystical explanation or leaving this at “the feels”). The problems of critique and finding what is wrong. Following what is right and effective to solve problems. How learning works with art and how it will be attempted in the course. Relax…it will be fine.
All classes will have demonstrations and examples, as well as assignments to address each subject. The first 30min-hour of each class will cover paint overs, views and discussion of the previous week’s work. These will be fairly concise and group common issues in selected representative pieces.
