What you'll learn in this mixed media class:

This advanced level course focuses on several portfolio-building strategies while students work in the media of their choice (drawing, painting, sculpture, design, video, performance, photography, installation, etc.) with an emphasis on interdisciplinary practice. 

The class begins by exploring several theme-based assignments, then each student develops their own self-driven final project. In addition, students are shown how to properly document their work, craft artist statements, discuss their work with others, and build/present strong portfolios that fully represent them as artists. 

Students taking this class during the fall term also prepare for and take part in Chicago's National Portfolio Day at SAIC. Artist presentations, critiques, and field trips supplement studio time. 

This course is intended for students that have previous experience and a deep interest in the visual arts, want to add new work to their portfolio, and are comfortable working independently.
