2015 Faculty-led Study Away Opportunity
Scotland: Explore, Draw, CreateKCAD Illustration, Art History, and Design in the UK
Fly to Glasgow, via Dublin, with a small group of your peers from a number of different majors. We will travel from Glasgow to Edinburgh and into the Highlands by train, visiting historic sites, castles, graveyards, museums, and galleries. We’ll be reading about and immersing ourselves in the ancient and modern aspects of Scottish culture. Depending on which courses you take, you’ll study the design and ornamental traditions of Mackintosh, MacNair, and the MacDonald sisters, you’ll draw fantastic architectural sites (and imagine new ones) using mixed media, and/or you’ll integrate these influences into original jewelry and other product designs by making use of 3D modeling, rendering, and printing using your laptops. You can take up to 6 credits in 2 weeks by custom mixing offerings from the Illustration, Art History, Metals/Jewelry, and/or Industrial Design program faculty. Aye!
