Patricia Voulgaris, Visual artist

Throughout this course we will analyze a broad range of performative works through a series of weekly exercises. These works will serve as a jumping-off point for the development of performance pieces. Students will collaborate with each other to successfully plan, execute and document their performances through zoom, iPhone, and other recording devices at their disposal. This interactive course will introduce you to performance artists, creative problem solving and the opportunity to participate in collaborative exercises, critique, and weekly discussions. We will also explore the materials and photographic equipment needed for creation and documentation. By the end of the course students will have further developed their own practice by creating individual performance pieces.
NOTE: All students with an active registration in this online course will be given free access to the Adobe Creative Cloud. This course is fully online and offered through a combination of synchronous as well as asynchronous lectures and discussions. Students are invited to attend regularly scheduled online sessions during the listed course hours.
