Emphasis is on thinking critically about how and what to convey via visual imagery, problem-solving ideas from beginning to end, analyzing the efficacy of developed images (self as well as peers), and developing a repertoire of visual thinking techniques. Numerous images are generated, collected, sketched, drawn, re-drawn, or found, all for the purpose of developing collages that combine images with other wet and dry art media. A hands-on, exploratory and process-oriented course, students are guided to develop a cohesive body of three to four pieces for show.
