Visual Thinking: Dots, Trees, Spirals, and Other Cognitive Marks

Details


INSTRUCTOR: Gretchen Scharnagl

SECTION: U45

SCHEDULE: Monday and Wednesday, 11:00AM – 12:15PM

Course Description

An exploration of meaning in meaningless marks. This course is designed for those that are abundantly curious. Each week we will ponder such things as asemic writing, concrete poetry, intermedia art, archetypal imagery, scribbles, doodles, maps, diagrams, tattoos, and graffiti, and much, much, more. People (and other animals) throughout history, culture, and nature, have had the imperative to make marks, from healing to destruction, the good and the bad. Just what are we all saying? With the filter of the visual artist, and thinker, this class will play and explore by doing.
