5 WEEK COURSE ONLINE | 2 hours of live instruction each week

Landscape and wildlife have noticeably been considered throughout art history and have been a source of inspiration for many artists. In contemporary art, looking at nature becomes more comprehensive, and this subject is strongly raised concerning science, the environment, and the deconstructive and adaptive aspects.

This course inquires how we, as an artist, can make the Landscape and animals relevant, new, and fresh in the contemporary art world while looking back to art history. Experiencing materials and the technical skills of drawing, this class explores the concepts surrounding this subject and how the students can creatively advance the genre. Individual projects concentrated on related themes will be conducted in a series of works that the students propose.
