ART 111 - Basic Studio Fiber Art

This course will provide students with introductory level Fiber Art knowledge and skills.  Fiber Art will be explored through production, critique, history and aesthetics.  Students will be provided with the fundamental technical, historical and conceptual information necessary to produce fine art forms and develop a portfolio.  Through two-and three-dimensional projects, students will have an opportunity to creatively explore a variety of traditional and non-traditional flexible materials, techniques and concepts while developing a portfolio.  Emphasis will be place upon the ability to investigate the unique qualities and characteristics of materials and the development of an original response to an assignment.  Critical thinking will be addressed with each project, allowing students to improve their ability to analyze visual works of art.  Through creative studio practice, students discover relationships relevant to their role as an artist and work to develop the following emphasized artistic traits: perceptual openness, flexibility/adaptability, the courage to take a risk, the ability to analyze, and self-confidence.
