Course Description: 

In this class we explore the wacky world of the new creature of digital life, the emoji, including the world-famous yellow smiley faces, the ever-useful thumbs-up and, of course, the poop emoji! Students will engage in painting, printmaking, T-shirt design, and bitmoji art. But behind the novelty and silly characters, the students will be encouraged to realize that emojis, though seemingly modern, are really just a new form of an age-old tradition: Art, a way of communicating that allows us to say things that simple words sometimes cannot. A materials fee of $25 is due to the instructor at the first class. For more information, please contact the instructor at nardimishra@gmail.com.
