We’ll take a tour of a variety of art materials including drawing, printmaking and sculpture and dabble a little in optical art and illusions. This is an experimental investigation of materials and process with an itty bit of science to explain how it is all going down. We will also dig a bit into the history of illusion and make a camera obscura and a few other hand held illusory devices. This class is a mix of activities with many open options for students to find what satisfies their own interests. We will learn about process and materials but the outcome is entirely up to each student. Improvisation and spontaneity in making are always encouraged.
