A

All studio art majors (and interested photography majors) who are engaged in the Senior Project will meet for a weekly seminar/critique/discussion. The aim of the meeting will be to create a forum for the continual exchange of views and ideas among the senior students and to encourage and develop skill in articulating ideas in speech and writing. Its form and subject will change week to week, but will include writing assignments (toward "Word and Image" catalogue); group critiques and discussion of student work; discussion of exhibitions on campus; discussion with guest speakers. All studio art seniors must participate.

 

ART STUDIOS

The studio art faculty offer "Studios" (workshops) in painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. In the painting and drawing Studios there may be two levels (corresponding to Intermediate and Advanced). Admission to all classes will be by portfolio, though students will be expected to have completed at least one foundations and one basic course in the chosen discipline. In order to achieve full circulation through this new structure, students are strongly encouraged not to repeat with the same faculty.

Title

The History & Making of Old Master Prints from Dürer to Rembrandt

Professor

Edward Smith / Anne Bertrand

Schedule

Wed 9:00 am - 12:00 pm FISH

Distribution

A/F

This course will enable students both to study the history of Old Master prints and to learn how to make prints. We will closely look at the artistic production of printmakers, such as Dürer, Callot and Rembrandt, and examine the social, historical and religious contexts in which these works were produced in an effort to understand the function of print in society. At the same time, we will learn how to create woodcuts, etchings and engravings. We will do original work and transcriptions from Old Master prints (students should plan to spend about $75 in materials for the printmaking part of the class). We will produce a show of students' work and an exhibition catalogue. Field trips to look at original master prints will be planned. This course is intended especially for students with a general interest in the arts. Enrollment is by permission of the instructors.

 

WORKSHOPS

In addition to the courses in Studio Art, the following Workshops will be offered.

Carving

Schedule

Carving is the basic subtractive process. Foresight and vision are required to stay ahead of the material. The art of carving is constantly being updated with the visions of contemporary artists. Concepts that have recently reinvigorated this ancient process have included installation, mixed media and site specific works. Students in this workshop will choose between carving from wood logs or from stone. Each material has its own unique possibilities, limitations, and material presence to be explored.
