ARTS 1914: Say Something, Make Something: Art and Language

3 CreditsFreshman Seminar

Say Something, Make Something: Art and Language focuses on the ways contemporary artists use, re-use, and re-interpret language in their artworks. By utilizing the written word, artists expand their practice from traditional art materials to engage with the interdisciplinary field of language. Utilizing their interests and abilities in a variety of subjects and media, students in this course create works that are personal, engage audiences, and comment on the world around us. Classes include discussions of readings, writing warm-ups, demonstrations of technical skills, visiting artists, field trips, and more. Students will undertake a number of small writing assignments, complete three main art projects, attend art-related field trips, and participate in group discussion. Students learn and utilize a variety of art techniques in this course, including writing, photography, bookmaking, and printmaking.
