Interdisciplinary Projects

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2019

Dates: February 5 - April 23Anne Eder
Days/Times: Tuesdays, 6:30 - 9:30pm 
Level: Beginner - Advanced
Instructor: Anne Eder

Course Description:   Boundaries between mediums and disciplines have become less distinct and more permeable as image makers increasingly turn to sculpture and installation as vehicles for self-expression, and those making three-dimensional work incorporate imagery. This class is a forum for experimentation with contemporary art methods of photography, mixed media sculpture, and installation. The focus will be on the pragmatic aspects of creating interdisciplinary work such as schedules, prioritizing tasks, selecting materials, and problem solving for site-specific locations, as well as employing a fluid work flow between two and three dimensions.

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2019

Dates: February 7 - April 25Zac Throwing
Days/Times: Thursdays, 10:00am - 1:00pm
Level: Intermediate - Advanced
Instructor: Zac Mickelson

Course Description: This class format focuses on breaking old habits and considering new directions to take our work including utility, form and surface. There are three, three-week cycles to this 12-week class. For two weeks, students, with the guidance of the instructor will “explore” through experimentation with different forms. The third week, the group comes together to “refine” through critique intended to refine our ideas. This format is then repeated two more times. Though this class does focus primarily on the wheel, hand builders are welcome! Class demonstrations will be given based on student input with the remainder of the class being one-on-one help. (12 classes/13 weeks)
