Ana M. Lopez
From the time of the Industrial Revolution, individuals have chosen to create decorative art objects with pre-industrial materials and technologies ranging from the personal to the political. In this workshop students will explore examples of those who have chosen craft and why they create it. Through discussion, lecture, field trips and visual media you will learn about this process. There will be no making of physical objects in conjunction with this class. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $450
