Studio Art in the South Pacific
The goal of this program is to bring together studio art practice with the challenges and advantages of off-campus study – drawing from nature in a new environment, studying social issues in context, and producing narrative work in response to travel.
Students will work both to improve their drawing skills and to see drawing as a unique way to understand the world. The work of the entire term, including both drawing and printmaking projects, will form a visual journal in which the students will record the experiences of travel abroad. Students will examine social and environmental issues, learn about indigenous and post-colonial art and artists, visit with artists, and interact with many people along the way.
