Studio Components {surface + space}

Welcome FALL 2017 WASHers! 

Please review the WASH required material list, SHSU Art Department Laptop Initiative & check your SHSU email for updates!

WASH is an experimental studio environment that combines training in visual and critical thinking with an exploration of the ideas and practices of contemporary visual art. This nine credit hour interdisciplinary immersive program, which includes two studio components {surface + space} and a Friday lecture component, expose students to a wide variety of styles, methodologies, material possibilities and concepts.

Studio Objectives: This interdisciplinary aspect of WASH, will meet twice a week in six hour blocks. Students will be invited to investigate, take risks, work within parameters, creatively problem solve, as well as think big. Throughout the semester students will be challenged to explore a wide range of media and materials to create art, with several overall goals in mind:

Think broadly, deeply, imaginatively and critically about art and art making.

Combine research, direct observation and analysis to visually problem solve, dialogue and write about artwork in a genre appropriate for exhibition essays, artist statements and design proposals.

Identify the formal components of works of art or design, elements + principles of design and employ them to create thoughtful and complex works art and be able to explain how they support or disrupt the artist’s apparent concept or subject matter.

Articulate ideas visually through practice with various materials and styles.

Collaborate with peers effectively with timely and clear communication, active participation in ideation, design + building process.

Implement effective and efficient professional habits {thoughtful presentation of work, attending class prepared, deinstalling work while leaving the space better then you found it, working within a timeline and overall time management}

Make informed visual and conceptual choices.

Acquire foundational knowledge of art and contemporary artists.

Communicating effectively through writing, research, evaluating, analyzing and critiquing your own work, as well as your peers’ work.

This program will equip students with tools that are essential to an individual’s growth as an artist, animator or designer. Each student must be willing to stretch artistically and grow beyond previous artistic experiences.

Studio Expectations: You are here to make ART. This program will require a tremendous commitment to be successful. WASH professors and the art department have very high expectations of each of you. You should plan on spending a minimum of 30 hours a week both inside and outside of class. If you are not willing to fully invest the time needed to be a successful artist/animator/designer, please consider dropping all nine credit hours that make up The WASH Program immediately.
