Screen Shot 2018-02-19 at 2.13.27 PM.png

This week for Wednesdsay class we will be exploring movement with Professor Chase Angier in the Miller Performance Art Dance Studio. Due to the large size of the foundations class we will be meeting at 2 separate times. A and B Group will meet the faculty at 8:50 in Miller Rm 300.

C and D group please meet us at 9:50 also in Miller 300. ** Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move around in — this will be a class that requires you to be flexible and to be active. You will also be in bare feet as the floors are too slippery for socks.

First Week Workshop

During the first week back we will be engaged in a workshop that will ask you to explore the topic of Identity.You will be working individually and in groups to produce photographic portraits. While you are at home you may want to collect clothing and interesting props, you will be using the cameras on your cell phones but if you have other digital camera options please consider bringing them back to campus. We will provide lighting and tripods.

In preparation please read this essay by James Baldwin Letter from a Region of My Mind

We will be discussing it during our Wednesday class.

 

Welcome Back!

Happy New Year!

Kat, Sara and I have been gearing up for your return. I’ve attached several pieces of information that you will need as you get ready for next week.

  1. Class rosters: spring 2018 groupsvs3
  2. Workshop schedule:SP 2018 LAB Sched
  3. Materials Lists:Spring 2018 Materials Lists

** please look these over carefully and email me if you have questions. In terms of the materials lists — all of the materials can be purchased at the Alfred Bookstore but we encourage everyone to source stuff online, at your local art store or from home if you already have some of the supplies in your personal collection.

Safe travels back and I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Final Reviews

finish-line

Hello Foundations Class!

Final Review Week: Next week is final reviews during this time we will not be having our regularly scheduled classes, instead, each of you are scheduled for a 1/2 hour long critique of selected work ( please see blog post from 11/22). You are only responsible for attending your review. In preparation please make sure that all of the work your Faculty has requested for review is in good shape ie, clean, finished and flattened. If you are planning to show documentation of artwork please make sure that they are either good quality 8 x 10 color photographs or high quality images easily accessible on your computer. For those of you who do not have lap tops for displaying your blogs we will have 2 available for lending each day of the critiques.

Final Review Question: Please carefully consider and be prepared to talk about the follow question during your final review.

” What are 4 skills that you have learned this semester that you are proud enough of to share with your family and friends?”

Clean-Up: The Harder Hall and Cohen studios will be cleaned over break so please make sure to clear out all of your artwork and art materials before you leave for holidays. You will be keeping your lockers in Harder Hall for the rest of the school year.

 

No Class Tomorrow ( wednesday)

Dear Students — In recognition of the fact that we are approaching the end of the semester and that you all need some time to find the art work requested by your faculty for final review ( next week). Kat, Sara and Angie have decided to give you tomorrow’s class as a preparation day for locating and finishing projects.

The final review schedule will be posted by the end of the day Thursday.
