seeLAB is designed to expand upon the drawing experience in the fall semester which introduced students to basic observational and alternative drawing languages.
fuseLAB explores concepts of design and image-making, light and color. Students may consider communication and surface through exploration of the natural world and the built environment.
makeLAB This course is intended to develop a student’s knowledge of hand skills and craftsmanship through concept and material investigation, the use of tools and a consideration of three dimensional space.
coLAB provides an integrated art-making experience that builds on the research methods introduced in the fall. The emphasis will be on helping students translate their explorations into appropriate art forms that best communicate their concepts. Projects explore context in art-making and may facilitate engagement with physical and thematic communities with opportunities for collaboration and dialogue about co-production.
Please keep in mind that you must pass ALL four LABS to pass Foundations.
