Section: C

CRN: 2216

Credits: 6

In this intermediate-level course students will build upon the skills learned in Core 3D to work on a variety of complex projects that explore the possibilities of moving visual storytelling beyond the printed page into the physical realm of three-dimensional objects. Projects will include toy design, paper sculpture, textile and needle arts, the book as object and surface decoration -- all using hand tools and traditional media along with laser cutting, 3D printing and other fabrication techniques. Students will learn to apply the skills of an illustrator to the creation of three-dimensional objects and environments that tell compelling stories. Emphasis will be placed on creating work geared for reproduction and sale.

Topics are a unique type of studio course focusing on various facets of the Illustration industry, conceptual scenarios or techniques associated with the curriculum. These studios are a more intense and focused environment immersing the student in a deeper look at the subject matter and are a logical precursor to the upcoming Thesis in Senior year. Topical sections for spring 2016 include the following:

Making and Publishing a Graphic Narrative: In this course, students will research, develop and produce one novella-length graphic narrative or a collection of short-stories and plan its distribution via print and/or online. Through critiques and writing assignments, students will reflect upon their own work and aesthetic sensibility with the aim of developing a unique and sophisticated approach to text and image based storytelling.

Sid's Toys: This course will explore the world of animatronic puppetry and toy making for the purposes of making stop motion animation. Students will be given extensive demonstrations in mold making, armature construction, toy design, character design and narrative. Students will collaborate with the Animation Topics course and make a short stop motion animation with the figures created in the class.

Narrative PaintingIn this course students will delve deeper into techniques and concepts associated with painting in various media while crafting a visual narrative. Through self-initiated projects that focus on conceptual sketches, process and revisions. Working in a the medium of their choice, students will hone their painting skills to a more refined level of expertise. This course is intended as an intense studio environment, stressing the importance and benefits of a solid working practice. .

The Book as Object: The book is a delivery system for a story, an experience, the exploration or presentation of an idea. The conceptual artist’s book is all of these things while reminding the reader that the book is also an object. As the future of the book, and reading in general, is being rethought, books continue to be vital experimental laboratories for new ideas around visual narrative. As digital media threaten to replace ink-and-paper books and print media are experiencing existential crises, the book that MUST be a book, the book as object, that resists translation into electronic form, is more in evidence than ever.

Animation: This course will delve deeper into the world of animation techniques. Students will embark on a series of individual projects as well as team up in production groups to produce stop motion animations with the Sid's Toys class. Narrative storytelling, along with plot and character development, will be integrated with the technical aspects of this animation course.
