FACR 216 - Research Practices

1.5 credits
This course is designed to develop traditional and creative research strategies necessary for contemporary art practice. Students learn to find and use information that can both generate and enhance their ideas. This kind of “”information literacy”” enriches the content factor in the form/content equation essential to artworks. Using numerous resources for collecting material, research will cover historical, cultural, social, and political contexts for art ideas. Various methods will be explored for recording, classifying and representing information, such as writing, mapping, diagramming, drawing, and other notational systems. This course is directly lined to the development of studio projects outlined in FACR 215 Subjects/Formats.

Priority enrollment to Fine Arts majors.
