Projects will focus on topics such as the psychological body, the political body and the abstracted body. Slide lectures, critiques and a gallery/museum visit will supplement studio work. Three two-hour periods per week. Prerequisite(s): ART 234  or permission of instructor. Alternate years; next offered fall 2007. Fall semester. (4 Credits)
