This remote course looks at how to create and appreciate abstract works of art. We will consider various art-historical origins for abstraction such as DADA, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism and Conceptual Art as jumping off points for various studio projects. These projects offer ways of exploring geometry, gesture, expressivity, structure and process in non-objective image making. Digital resources such as slide presentations, artist interviews and virtual museum tours supplement studio work.
