For New Students
ARTS 101-107 offer the beginning student a wide variety of media and subject matter to explore. In each class, students confront the decisions that go into making personally meaningful artwork via demonstrations, slides, lectures, and critique sessions, but most importantly by manipulating materials and ideas. Course content and approach will differ from section to section or class to class, but in each the goal is to introduce students to the ideas, techniques, and vocabularies of producing visual art.
Enrollment in introductory courses usually ranges from fifteen to twenty-three students per section, depending on facilities. No previous art experience is necessary.
