Media and Themes

Every student will choose the medium which they will have to investigate.  These mediums could be anything from  traditional mediums such as paint to more contemporary mediums such as sound or video. You must also research the context in which the work of art was created, and reinterpret the theme/spirit of that work with a new medium. Every student must develop a concept or theme based on an artwork which they will reinterpret with their media.

You will have to create a way of documenting your experiments as well as your research. This can be done in a digital format (such as a blog or even just a Google Doc) or an old fashioned sketchbook.

Your sketchbooks(Blogs) will be a place to document your investigations into various techniques.
