Mixed Media

Mixed Media

The mixed media program seeks to develop student artists who are confident in creating artworks that communicate a social, political or personal message.

Conceptual development is the dominant feature of the course along with the exploration of non-traditional materials and the repurposing of recyclables. Projects consist of collage, assemblage, printmaking, textile/fiber, sculpture, ceramics and wearable art.

Field trips to museums and galleries fortify students' outlook and appreciation toward art, and are frequently scheduled throughout the semester. Moreover, students have opportunities to work alongside professional artists through week-long workshops sponsored by the Tam & Young Arts Chair.
