The goal of this program is to bring together a studio art practice and off-campus study: drawing from nature in a new environment, producing narrative artwork in response to travel, and studying cultural and environmental issues in context. Students will work to improve their drawing skills and to see drawing as a unique way to understand the world. Work from the entire term—both drawing and printmaking—will form a visual journal in which they record their experiences of travel abroad. Additionally, students will learn about physical landscapes, local communities, indigenous and post-colonial artwork, and experiential understanding.
