DRWAN FROM THE LANDSCAPES: STUDIES FROM THE ART AND EARTH COLLABORATION

In the spring of 2016, Wofford professors Kris Neely and Dr. Kaye Savage continued their course collision collaboration by sharing field experiences between two distinct courses. The classes met together once each week to investigate the natural sources of art materials through hands-on laboratories. Students used natural materials - soapstone, clay, handmade watercolors, chalk, charcoal, and graphite - to interpret and communicate attributes of the landscape. Each of the five sections of this exhibition represents the work of a group with members from both courses -- Materials and Methods (ARTS 247), mostly first year students,  and Art and Earth (ENVS 330), a class of five senior art and science students. The art, objects, and curated information in this exhibition represent the students' own work and their collaborative visions.
