ARTS 2720 Fibers I: Forms & Materials

Prerequisites: ARTS 1000 or 1200, and ARTS 2800 or 2810. Students are introduced to fiber structures through a variety of processes, including loom weaving, basketry techniques, and mixed media compositions. By using conventional and non-conventional methods, the art of weaving will be explored by creating both two and three-dimensional forms. Through slide lectures, demonstrations, research, and critiques, students will gain a better understanding of "fiber" as fine art. Emphasis will be placed upon the development of skill and craft, personal direction, and concepts. Additional studio fee required; see semester course schedule for amount.
