Course taught by Ian Gonsher. • Fall 2011
Starting from the assumption that there is no single strategy for creative thinking, this class, lead by Ian Gonsher, pushed students to work as artists/designers. Developing an object-based studio environment, students examined various approaches to refining of creative processes. Topics like visual literacy, design thinking, creative collaboration, exploratory play, divergent and convergent thinking, iteration, ideation, woodworking, drawing, and other technical and abstract approaches were all addressed. Ultimately, the class established both technical and conceptual foundations for the design and fabrication of objects and experiences.
