Foundational-level College Art Classes: Syllabi, Projects, Examples, Readings.
This set of pages is intended to be a repository of Art -College Foundations-level information – syllabi, reading lists, artists, project examples, notes, presentations, video tutorials, links and discussion.
The basic idea here is that learning to draw/paint/computer mediate is a fundamental and necessary proposition. Being an artist and creative is a right that is within EVERYONE'S grasp.
As such, ideas on how to regain your creative impulse should be available free and open to all. See Berkeley, MIT, and Harvard's partnership – edX on enhancing interactive and contemporary learning.
I'm hoping to form these pages – with a concentration on College Art Foundation-level classes – in that spirit.
Syllabi for Studio and Digital College Art Foundations. This section shows many ideas, content, discussion, readings and examples for an approach of art-making that is experience and expression based. Separate sections for classes that are more studio based and a section for classes that are more digital/motion studies based.
