Form and Content are intertwined in purpose and form an inseparable bond. This class will help students develop and define their vision through examining their own personal philosophy and artistic vision. Examples of artworks from throughout history will be explored in the context of the time, place, and atmosphere in which they were created to help better understand how to develop images that have purpose and intent. Students will also develop original works in which they can explore the relation of image, subject, and intent. The importance of thumbnail drawings and idea generation will be heavily emphasized as well as how to implement these into making finished works.
