ART 2215 - Arts of the Southwest

3 cr
In this course students will undertake a personal creative challenge to respond to the environment with a variety of media: pencil, watercolor, paint, found objects and more.  Elements of design, composition, color theory and experimentation with various media will be included.  Basic drawing techniques and watercolor skills will be developed, working from observation.  Additionally students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich artistic traditions of the Southwest, both ancient and cutting-edge contemporary.  Museum and gallery visits and student responses to them are an important component to this class. 
This course fulfills the Aesthetic Understanding frame of reference.
Course fee $100
Offered only as part of the Santa Fe semester.
