    Though Shila Khatami’s paintings make use of pop cultural references—sometimes the titles quote Blondie or Cyndi Lauper lyrics—her works are ultimately about the tradition and material possibilities of painting. As the base for these works, Khatami uses readymade or manufactured objects found in common hardware stores, such as smooth sheets of aluminum, fiberboards, pegboards, and phonic isolation foam. Her painting process includes a wide range of non-traditional tools, like rubber bands and masking tape, and methods such as rolling, dripping, and scoring.

Perspective Drawing


Developed during the Renaissance, perspective was as innovative then as the Internet is today. Perspective enabled artists to create the illusion of depth, volume, and three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional picture plane. Interior design is concerned with the creation of living, working, and hospitality environments. The spaces themselves, as well as their contents, needs to be rendered both two and three-dimensionally. This is accomplished through using grids, floor plans, and one-point and two-point perspective drawings. Floor plans help to illustrate a design concept. One-point and two-point perspective grids help bring the designer's vision into reality. In this hands-on course, students gather reference photos of furniture, accessories, and plants to fill their rooms, and render them in felt-tip markers. Students create two room designs, print, and render them in felt-tip markers. Students work in class every session - bring supplies to all class meetings.
