3 credits 90.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

This course investigates the social, artistic, and human factors that shape our experience of the environment. Students will develop an understanding of the relationships between a work of art or design and its physical, social and experiential contexts. Site visits and field trips in the Philadelphia area and region will allow students to understand how works are situated in the world. Students will generate art and design projects that demonstrate an understanding of these relationships. The course will require students to strengthen their skills in the following areas: observation, measurement, documentation, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional methods of representation, modeling (digital and analog), manipulation of materials, analysis and contextual thinking.
