GRA 0011 - Type As Image

This class is designed for artists from various disciplines who use text in their work. It questions the use of type in art making and challenges students to look at typography as mark making. Slide lectures and project assignments will encourage students to work with self-generated expressive text.Students will work on several main ideas during the semester. Projects assignments will provide a structure for each student's interest toward typography and text based artwork and will focus on visual aspects of typography. We will study the vernacular type and the historical development of typographic styles. Students will develop a series of compositions using expressive typography. We will explore the relationship between type to architecture, type to the body, and type to sound.The computer will be our primary tool but not the only one. You are encouraged to bring in skills in calligraphy, photography, and drawing. During the course of this class we will use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fontographer as the main software applications. A basic course for all designers and all graphic artists using text. Class Notes: Registration will be open for non-SMFA students starting on 4/17.
