Studying the work of artists during the Arte Povera period, students will invite their own ideas around repurposing objects and work around the material as a subject.

 Week 2 

Surreal Animals 

Surrealism 

In the style of Surrealist artists, students will invite the viewers to reimaging the animal kingdom through their eyes. Changing their textures, physical attributes and perhaps suggesting a new direction to evolution.

 Week 3 

Image Transfer 

Dadaism 

In this project students will discover the work of collage artists during the Dadaism period and ideas around transmiting a strong message by manipulating an image. They will be invited to redirect the narrative of an image while learning transfer and collage techniques.

 Week 4 

Icones 

Iconography

This class will focus on Iconography, its meaning, use and techniques. Students will select a concept they feel strongly about, reflecting on current societal issues and create a symbole for it.

 Week 5 

Screen Printing

Pop Art

Using the work of the previous week, students will learn about ideas developed during the Pop Art movement, and learn how techniques are sometimes the subject of artwork as much as the image.

 Week 6 

Face off

Drawing and photography

In this last class, students will be invited to reimagine themselves, either reflecting on what they hope to become or on what they wish others would see more about themselves. It is a work of Observation and introspection.
