This is a major course for the Summer Art and Design Program 2020. This course cannot be taken separately. (Students get to select from four majors: Graphic Design, Fashion Design, Interior Design and Painting, and Printmaking)
The course will touch the fundamentals of fine arts: conceptual development, techniques and methods, critical thinking/decision-making, and future prospects in the fine arts. This course is a collaboration between VCUarts Qatar and the National Museum of Qatar; hence, some of the projects and lectures were designed to reflect the contents of the museum galleries. This will provide the students with in-depth knowledge of the cultures/traditions of Qatar and to help learn ways to shape the contemporary art scene.
The program is divided into two parts: in-class lectures and studio time. There will be three different projects and presentations throughout the course. At the conclusion of this community course, the students will have gained technical skills––drawing, painting, sculpting––practical skills of creating art, as well as knowledge in culture and traditional objects of Qatar.
