Classes offered for the Spring 2013 Advanced Art Workshop:

This course will encourage students to find their voice in clay through a series of hand building projects. Slab, coil and pinch pot processes with be covered through dynamic works aimed at self-expression.  Each week the class will look at various historical works in clay as a starting point for our own inspiration as well as to gain a deeper awareness of this medium.

Experimental Painting
This class, as opposed to the traditional introductory classes in painting which usually focus on basic technique, will take a more modern approach to painting and focus on what we as contemporary viewers value from painting today.  The goal is not to dismiss technique (for it is obviously very important) but to expose younger students who might not otherwise have the chance, to what it means to be a painter today.  Experimentation will be key, not for its own sake, but for the rewards that will arise from trial and error.

Photo/Digital Art
This course will include an introduction to several techniques in creating digital artwork. Students will learn basic skills in image and video editing software, which will provide the basis for completing several class projects, as well as discuss how digital techniques can be useful in creating traditional works. The class will begin by looking at digital photography/collage and progress into video and the moving image. Further, we will be looking at a number of contemporary and modern artists working in the field as a means of contextualizing work completed in the class.

The classes/themes offered for this program are:

Soundscapes (focus on digital tools, sound recording)
From the sounds of the urban city to the music that plays on our headphones – how are we defined by the sounds and music around us? Artists today often combine visual and auditory forms in their work. From artists who work with found and recorded sound to artists who integrate music and auditory elements into installations, performance, and sculpture, increasingly the boundaries between visual and sound art are blending. This class will explore found sounds, produced sounds, and homemade sounds to find connections between who we are and what we hear and listen to. Students will explore a wide range of ways to collect, re-mix, and merge sounds and visual imagery using digital and analog tools.

Under Pressure
From the financial, to the social, to the political, we all feel and exert pressure in different ways. The need to deal with issues of social conformity and political pressure both relate to similar societal impulses. What are different forms of pressure that exist in different contexts – for instance in home, school, or society? How does pressure affect the way we interact and function with friends and family members, in our neighborhoods and communities? Does pressure exert control over us or can we control pressure? Artists have looked at the idea of pressure from many different vantage points – from artists who feel pressure to conform to government/societal expectations to artists who look at the current economic crisis from a global perspective. In this class students will explore the theme of pressure from various perspectives in order to create works of art in a variety of media.

The Changing City (Urban Landscape/Gentrification)
Art, artists and the art world play a role in changing city neighborhoods. Although often part of the process of gentrification that changes poor neighborhoods into more wealthy areas, artists have also been critical of this process and played a role in drawing public attention to it. In this class, students will investigate the history and politics that have defined city neighborhoods and propose their own visions for urban public spaces and neighborhood transformations. Doing their own historical and contemporary research, students will also be introduced a wide range of artists who have looked at issues of gentrification and neighborhood evolution. Why do neighborhoods look different from one to the other? Who gets to live where and why? How do residents, business owners, and visitors all shape the way neighborhoods and the city overall looks, feels, and sounds? This class will look specifically at the urban environment, but through the lens of gentrification.

We all change daily. Change happens in our body as cells regenerate, when we meet new people and have new experiences, when we wear different clothes or put on makeup. In turn, individuals have the power to transform the spaces and situations around them. This class will explore how individuals cannot only transform themselves, but influence broader social issues and concerns. What is the power of taking on different roles and how can these new roles enable individuals to change the world around them? Many artists have explored the themes of identity and transformation as a form of social activism. These artists often use alter egos or new personas to influence the world around them and address specific concerns in ways that perhaps they could not have done without their transformation. What forms, structures, and aesthetic strategies are contemporary artists using to represent transformation in our self, society, and world? This class will explore the theme of transformation as a means of personal and social agency.
