Artists will do an in-depth investigation of, “What is art?” Artists will examine and discuss this question while exploring different ideas about how to create an artwork that communicates one’s thoughts and feelings. We’ll examine different concept artists (such as Duchamp, Dine, Hamilton, and Pindell, among others), and delve into one of the greatest ongoing debates of all time. Students will choose a question to explore, and use critical thinking and problem solving skills to visually communicate their ideas to others. We’ll engage in class critiques and tie in art history and theory along the way.
