Overview

Art in a Changing Landscape is designed for rising high school juniors and seniors to study art at a top tier liberal arts institution. In addition to creating artwork, the course will address topics such as studying art in college, how to create a portfolio, writing an artist statement, and exhibiting artwork.

How do you observe your surroundings? How do you focus your attention? What is your relationship with the natural environment? What can you say through the work you make? Art can foster a unique level of engagement with the environment around us, and this can generate many diverse insights and applications. 

This course is focused on studio skills: drawing, printmaking, and bookbinding. We will use these creative tools to record and think about what we see in the surrounding landscape. In addition, the course will address topics such as studying art in college, how to create a portfolio, writing an artist statement, and exhibiting artwork.
