ART 074 PZ -Engineering Materials
Description: This hands-on interdisciplinary course, team-taught by an engineer and a sculptor, explores the possibilities and limitations of various materials, including metals, glasses, and polymers. Students will learn the science behind material manipulation and transformation, and will put this knowledge to direct use in the studio, experimenting with different processes as they create sculptural projects. Synthesizing lectures in materials science and art history with tactile engagement in the studio, this course aims to create a collaborative learning environment that encourages cross-pollinating ideas. No prior experience in either engineering or art is required, and students from all disciplines are encouraged to enroll.
Note(s): First-Years and Sophomores only
