The intent of this class is to expand media possibilities and examine the variables of image making, while establishing a sense of personal expression. An exploration of contemporary art-making practices, addressing issues of style, scale, media and utilizing various studio methods are tackled as we explore content. Particular emphasis is placed on issues of display and presentation of artworks.
Students are expected to meet the analytical, perceptual, and technical demands of the course and must be persistent in their practice of problem solving skills, while also keeping an open mind in regard to methods and tools.

This piece was created by using different hues of lipstick, applying it, and kissing the canvas until a convincing sense of realism was created. Upon completion of the project, the artists face was raw at the nose, chin, and lips. Outside the impact of the finished artwork, the underlying connotations of feminism and beauty in popular culture is made prevalent.
