ARCH 5770 - Drawings and Collages

In this course we make collages, drawings, and mixed media projects. Rather than distinguishing collage and drawing as separate categories, we explore their exciting in-between territory. We make plane (and plain) images: configurations of relatively stable, still marks on two-dimensional surfaces. We use traditional drawing methods (graphite, colored pencil or ink on paper) as well as more unusual tools and materials (sidewalk chalk, earth, trash, recycled materials). Through brief weekly readings and discussions we explore the relationship between aesthetics and ethics between “good forms” and forms that in some way contribute or allude to the “common good.”
