This seminar examines and challenges common assumptions about contemporary art and design. Essays, films, and art objects are considered and discussed. Students refine their opinions in a series of short writings that are compiled in a "portfolio of ideas" about art, its social role, and the processes by which it is made. (Distribution Reqs:Arts)

Learning Goals:   Course Objectives and Learning Goals:Introductory Art Seminar is a visual-art critical-thought course designed to assist you in the development and advancement of your visual literacy. We will view and discuss an enormous range of visual artwork and quickly develop a language that advances complex formal, aesthetic, philosophical and socio-political directions in the field. Students will develop critical thinking by writing brief weekly papers on art historical, aesthetic and other culturally relevant subjects that will culminate into a notebook. Visual Art solutions to similar problems and propositions will also be created, presented and critiqued. Participation in all group discussions is required.
