ART 239 Adornment
An introductory course in the study of art objects and artworks located on the human body. This course will explore the history, meaning, and creation of worn objects. Students will learn how to think of the body as site and as an armature: a place of decoration, a site for transformation, and a tool for human occupation and life. Students will explore these histories and meanings through the creation of unique and conceptual works in the traditional media of adornment: jewelry, body coverings, applied pigmentation, and hair manipulation. Students will work in a variety of traditional and non-traditional media and learn historical and contemporary processes in object making and, art-making. Interpretation of these works within a Christian worldview and a theological understanding of the body will be discussed and applied in the creation of student works. Prerequisite(s): Open to Art majors who have completed ART 110 , or by permission of instructor. Six hours studio. Course fee: $140. 3 hour(s).
