Spain Study Abroad

ARTS-112-SPN The Aesthetic Exp in Spain 

This course uses Comillas Spain as the context for understanding a wide range of topics including: light and photography, textural rubbings, found objects, creative strategies, observational and gesture drawing, color theory, photography and the shapes of the city, ephemeral art, logo design, typography, poster design, and other topics and activities. We will have in-class lectures and out-of-class walks. You will be expected to keep a daily journal of the in-class prompts and other observations. “Living (reading) without reflection is like eating without digesting.” Edmund Burke
