KSAS-373: Environment and Nature

3 credit hours

This course explores the interaction of humans with nature through a visual art context. Readings and exposure to a broad range of modern and contemporary artists will provide a context for producing work. Students will be introduced to approaches such as rearranging natural materials within their indigenous habitat and presenting nature within a human-made environment. Students may also utilize materials, processes, and subjectivity that directly address the relationships between humanity, environments, and the natural world. Students will find their personal approach through material, scale and process.

Prerequisite: Sophomore standing and KSA-130 or consent of the instructor
