This course requires weekly writings. The majority of these are descriptive essays based on an assigned image or object. Each image and all student work will be uploaded to Blackboard.
This site is mostly comprised of supplemental work, materials that showcase students’ range of writing and interests. Posts include students’ responses to a particular idea, movement, style, artist or work covering in our weekly sessions and offer a closer look into a particular design/designer mentioned in lectures. Students will also bring in outside, presenting some criticism or personal thoughts and making connections between the impact or relevance of works/events/players discussed and latter movements, the contemporary, or their own work. Occasionally, this blog will also serve as a place to share news of local events or student progress beyond the classroom, the course, and the university. At the end of the semester, students will post a review of a recent monograph, art book, or exhibition catalogue.
