Improvising the Space Between: Drawing, Architecture, and Sculpture

Listed in: Art and the History of Art, as ARHA-217


Carol W. Keller (Section 01)


This course is an exploration into the shared territories of drawing, architecture, and sculpture, and the hybrid spaces that may be created between those disciplines. An improvisational and responsive approach, in the spirit of experimentation and open inquiry, frames the studio-based course work. We will consider potentials and challenges of space, light, materials, joinery, structural geometries, organic growth, and temporality. After this initial period of information gathering, students will be free to determine the format or combination of formats that will shape an extended semester-end project. Readings, artist talks, museum visits and a wide range of pertinent visual materials will supplement and inform our studio work.

Requisite: One prior course in studio arts, architecture, or film production, or permission of the instructor. Limited to 12 students. Fall semester. Professor Keller.

If Overenrolled: Priority given to ARHA, FCAS, and FAMS majors, and to those attending the first class.
