I have recently been approached to teach art to engineering students. It’s a new idea at my school and we’re still very much in the brainstorming stage. The goal is to have them be able to: a) Communicate ideas visually and b) Communicate effectively with artists. What we’re currently hammering out is what, exactly, we should focus on. I thought that the discussion was worthy of opening up to the world. Have at it.
Artists, what do you wish technical people knew about art, graphic design, etc?
Technical People, what do you wish you could do? What artistic skills would most benefit you? What do artists do that doesn’t make sense to you?
The ART Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Mad Art Lab community. Look for it to appear Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 3pm ET.
