Studio Project: Narrative Collage

Concept

Make  a set of 3 related collages that have  some sense of a narrative aspect to them. Avoid a purely illustrative “story” with overly specific symbols and references, rather,  consider how the content of your collage can evoke certain themes and ideas while remaining open to interpretation by a viewer.    172 more words

Studio Project: Descent from the Cross

Concept:

This project focuses on composition as a coordination of visual elements within an image—how the parts come together as a whole.  Rather than starting from scratch, you’ll be taking a painting done by a master and extracting the compositional relationships from it by reducing the details and shapes. 171 more words

Studio Project: Camouflage

Concept:

Modern camouflage emerged in the early twentieth century in the confluence of several impetuses and influences: recent research in zoology and evolutionary biology, the development of aerial photography and the problem it posed in wartimes, British colonial uniforms influenced by Indian landscapes, and traditional concealment techniques used by hunters. 380 more words

Studio Project: Derivative Abstraction

Concept:

Carry out an extended visual investigation starting from a simple object or image and transform it into a finished abstract design. Your final design should be both directly derived from the original object and drastically abstracted away from the it to the point that it is no longer recognizable. 297 more words
