CRFT 224 - Art for the Body

3 credits
This introductory mixed-media course focuses on the body as the site-specific locus for a variety of art forms. Looking at a range of cultural and historical examples, students gain an appreciation for the personal and social influences that underlie our conception of the human body and how we construct for it. Studio work in an array of media, with specific emphasis on the use of metal, paper, fabric, and leather. Technical information includes flat pattern making, piecing and sewing; forming and fabrication; mixed-media construction; and systems of attachment, linkage, and closure. Emphasis on the student’s ability to generate unique solutions to the physical challenges imposed by the human body on the content of attire.

Priority enrollment to Crafts majors.
