Getting Ready

Dear Foundations Class,

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone has had a restful holiday, time to re-connect with family and friends and a moment to just focus on refilling your well of creative energy.

Because you’ll all need lots and lots of energy for the spring semester!

Kat, Sara, Dale and I are eagerly awaiting your return. We’ve been planning with your faculty and are very excited to keep working with you in the upcoming semester.

Before you get back there are some materials we want you to gather, and I have attached some information that will tell you which of the 4 group ( A, B, C or D) you have been assigned to and which LAB classes you will be taking during A block and B block and what materials your faculty have asked for. ** in addition to new materials, everyone is required to replenish your art kits — especially cutting tools like matte knife, blue tape, pins etc….

For the first week of class, we will all be participating in a large-scale, textile-based, group project that will take place in the Harder Hall studio — there is a separate materials list for that big project.

In the meantime enjoy this last week away and see you all soon spring

Fall Break

Dear Students — Congratulations on successfully completing the first part of the fall semester! I trust that all of you will find a way to relax and recharge over the next 4 days in order to return and begin anew. There was a great deal of impressive work that came out of all classes — pattern making, investigation of materials, learning about your surrounding community and connecting eye to hand as you worked on translating the visual world onto paper.

As mentioned earlier in the week, upon return to campus we will be using the 3 remaining days of class next week to engage in a group workshop. This means that the entire foundations class will be working on various experiments together we will not be breaking into our A and B groups right away.

We will be focusing on using photography to explore objects. Your homework for the weekend is to do the following:

  • Find and collect a series of 5 everyday objects. You can either collect 5 different everyday objects or a set of similar everyday objects. These objects will be altered in some way for our project so select objects that are not inherently precious to you
  • We are planning to use the cameras on your phones but if you have access to a good point and shoot or DSLR camera + tripod please consider bringing these tools back with you.

You will be working in small groups of 5. You may form your groups over the weekend or there will be time when you arrive back to campus.

 

Until we meet again be well, eat great food and connect with friends and family!

 

Wednesday Class

Dear Students — tomorrow morning we will be meeting in Nevins at 9:00. You will be meeting in the same small groups as last week to share your homework and your findings relative to the project’s viability, and if you have decided to make changes.

All groups need to be present at 9 am and ready to present.
