The Art Department offers a Community Artist course each fall and spring semester. This semester-length, studio course is typically taught by an artist living and working in the region. The purpose of Community Artist courses is to give students the opportunity to experience different perspectives and new artistic processes that are not offered in the regular curriculum. Examples of previous topics include Mixed Media: From Collage to Assemblage, Glassblowing, Non-traditional Papermaking, and Materiality and Meaning in Fibers. Course Fee. May be repeated one time for a maximum of 8 credits.
