Description: This course will examine ways that artists are able to convey stories in two dimensions. Each class will begin with a slide presentation depicting a wide range of work from different periods. These works include miniature painting in 15th century Iranian Court Art, illuminated manuscripts, medical illustrations, and Japanese wood block prints. Contemporary artists who use narrative and illustrative aesthetics in innovative ways, such as Hernan Bas, Layla Ali, Marcel Dzama and Nicole Eisenman will also be presented. The slide show will be followed by studio time, in which students will work on their independent project. Evaluations will be based on a 2-3 page paper which will be presented, as well as the student's independent project, which they will work on for the duration of the course. Prerequisites: Drawing 1 preferable, but not required.
