Asians in America and the Institute for Culture Unity (ICU) will present the “Cultural Bowl,” a community-based charity event that aims to raise funds for local shelters: New Hope Animal Shelter and Alfred Housing Committee, on Friday, February 24th from 12-4p.m. located in Powell Campus Center’s Knight Club.
The Cultural Bowl will combine handmade ceramic bowls from artists directed by Alfred University Junior, Takumi Morozumi, along with donated family-style meals from local community members, students, and faculty alike. Bowls will have a suggested price of $10, which will include food donated by community members.
Have holes in your sweaters? Threadbare jeans? Buttons falling off? Shirts coming apart at the seams? Don’t toss it – learn how to fix it!
Join Charlie Best (AU School of Art & Design) for an introductory lesson in clothing repair. No prior experience necessary. If you have articles of clothing that need fixing, bring them with you! Otherwise, scrap fabric will be provided to practice on.
The textile industry is one of the biggest sources of waste and pollution. A great way to reduce your environmental impact is to make your clothes last a long time or buy them secondhand, purchasing new textiles as little as possible.
This event will take place in the BookEnd Lounge at Herrick Library.

As careful observers of the world we see details and have insights into a rich and sometimes surreal world. As visual thinkers we use our imagination to describe the invisible and emotional. Artists have the ability to put as much energy and excitement into drawing a complex figure as they do a paper cup.
For this project we will take our inspiration cues from the exhibition Real Reel.
Step One: Pull out the objects from your pockets and/or bag
I.e. Gum wrapper, cough drop, pencil, coins, lighter, dental floss
Step Two: Choose 4-5 objects
Step Three: Using air dry clay sculpt these objects.Pay close attention to how you render these objects.
Remember just like in observational drawing you must begin with the general and move to the specific. Work the whole object and bring it into focus.
This should be done as a 1:1 scaleStep Four: Allow your finished objects to air dry
Step Five: Use paint to complete the details
Step Six: Bring original objects and render objects to class next Wednesday
