DescriptionWhere do ideas come from? How can we express them? CONCEPT is a class based on creating hands on projects from an idea to a finished visual piece of communication. Students will try to express their ideas and contextualize them to reflect social issues, politics, media, gender or cultural context. An important part of the class will be learning how to talk about ideas and concepts. Through the format of a discussion students will learn how to stimulate original and surprising ways to express their feelings, attitudes, opinions or judgements. They will discover ways, how to convert their ideas into original, strong and meaningful art pieces. The course will include a mutual interaction by passing messages to others and allowing students to apply research, as well as an intuitive sensitivity.
