Course Description

Explore the intersection of photography and drawing with the city of Los Angeles (or an alternative location) as the subject. In this course, students will create works of art on paper that translate locations into visual information. When a snapshot is taken, this document is missing so much - smells, sounds, textures, temperature, etc. This course employs digital photography, graphite, charcoal, inks, collage, image transfers, and more as the mediums to document your surroundings. The results will vary, some may be representational, while others will be quite abstracted. The course will first prepare students to create these pieces by learning a variety of mark making techniques with a wide range of materials, while studying the work of contemporary artists working in the field of mixed media. Then, students will create larger pieces that record the locations they are most interested in investigating. This could be as micro as a corner of their neighborhood or as macro as a slice of the city they are most familiar with.
