Cinematic Landscapes of Asia
Course No. HCS387X Credits: 3
Faculty Diana Y. Chou
This discussion/writing-style course is to explore contemporary films of Asia, focusing on India, China (Taiwan & Hong Kong), & Japan. The films serve as a window of global understanding in culture. Through assigned films, political, social, literary and visual aspects of these nations will be stressed in this course. Mini-lectures will be also provided occasionally to prepare the students in understanding the historical and cultural references in the contexts of contemporary Asian films. For writing assignments, each student is encouraged to self-express and self-identify through viewing the films and sophisticate responses in their writings/reports/critics of the films. The class is divided into 2 components: film viewing and discussion/lectures.
CMC BFA Research & Thesis
Course No. CMC400.1 Credits: 3
Faculty Matthew Hollern
This course is designed to examine concepts and technologies of the Craft and Material Culture majors, and support the pursuit of work of individual direction. Subjects are presented to challenge students to conduct research and examine their own position.Ę Discussions and presentations vary to recognize the direction of the group and include singular object-driven problems, formal issues, and conceptual challenges.Ę The course includes group discussion, visiting artists, field trips and presentations. Each student will develop a thesis in support of the studio work. A mandatory mid-year review at the end of the fall semester will prepare students for the oral defense of the BFA exhibition. Required of all graduating CMC majors. Offered fall. Open to electives. 3 credits.expand collapse
CMC: BFA Statement & Exhibition
Course No. CMC401.1 Credits: 3
Faculty William Brouillard
The goal of this course is to explore the concepts of emotion and aesthetic expression. We will seek to understand how and why emotion and aesthetic expression are central concepts in the theory and practice of art and design. We seek a strategic perspective on art and design with particular attention to the concepts and methods of liberal arts. We seek to balance theory, practice and production and encourage innovation and creativity. We will investigate concrete examples of emotional and aesthetic expression in a variety of traditional and new media in art and design, exploring different subject matters, materials, forms and purposes. Final grades will be based on two components: class participation and written assignments. Offered spring. 3 credits.expand collapse
CMC: Creative Process & Materials Studies
Building upon the foundation skills developed in the first year of study, students will continue to explore the elements of design through their major area of study. The creative process as it relates to the materials one selects to work with will be the unifying inquiry. Sophomores from all majors in the Craft and Material Culture Environment will explore common themes while resolving assignments in the individual majors; ceramics, enamel, glass, jewelry and metals. The class will support the integration of each studentŐs acquired knowledge of drawing, design, and color with the development of skills related to the various CMC major programs. Offered fall. 3 credits.expand collapse
CMC: Digital Modeling & Making
Course No. CMC301.1 Credits: 3
Faculty Matthew Hollern
Craft & Material Culture Core 4 will explore the integration of computer-aided design (CAD) across the craft disciplines.Ę Building on the CMC Core 3 course, Digital Modeling and Making will address a range of new materials and technologies toward innovative applications across the range of Craft, new skills and knowledge from 3D modeling to computer aided manufacturing, and rapid prototyping. Projects will integrate design and output experiences toward exploration of new materials, patterns, molds, templates, models, and objects. The seminar/studio course includes weekly seminar discussions, presentations, and reviews as well as dedicated work in the studios, labs, and major spaces. Laptops are recommended but not required. Offered spring. 3 credits.expand collapse
CMC: Language of Material
As the sophomore Craft and Material Culture class matriculates to second semester, we will explore commonalities and differences in the language of each of our materials. Emphasis will be placed on the visual voice within each material, and in each materials process. This makes for interesting investigations/explorations within and across mediums. Historically then, are processes connected with the evolution of function? The class will explore inherent physical properties that may bring content and breadth to ideas born from the media itself. We will continue the process of research and ideation using these common themes, and explore through experimentation. Each studentŐs individual voice will begin to emerge. Fundamental techniques will be explored and practiced, stressing the practice of the maker. Idea-books /sketchbooks will continue to be worked on as an important part of the creative process. Offered spring. 3 credits.expand collapse
CMC: Surface and Image
Course No. CMC300.1 Credits: 3
Faculty Gretchen Goss
The third year of the Craft and Material Culture Core Curriculum will explore the integration of digital imaging, three-dimensional modeling, and the materials and processes associated with the four major departments. The fall semester course will specifically focus on application and integration of two-dimensional digital images on the surfaces and forms in clay, enamel, glass and metal. Through assignments that will encourage the use of digital technology for the development of image, pattern and texture, students will utilize and develop their skills with imaging software and explore how it translates into the various materials and surfaces. Offered fall. 3 credits.expand collapse
Collaboration Through a Printed Experience
Course No. PRI210.1 Credits: 3
Collaboration is defined by the interaction of two or more people. This studio course supports the student in the development of a body of work while offering an opportunity to experience collaboration by bringing together idea generation, image making and production. Through a series of projects students will use a variety of traditional and experimental processes to define the parameters of collaboration. Moving beyond the opening platform, students will redefine collaboration as they develop projects informed by course objectives through the inclusion of their personal aspirations. (Collaboration could suggest projects between students, artist and author, student and faculty, student and individual in the community, etc.) Note: This course is open to all, and fulfills an introductory, intermediate and advanced level elective course. 3 credits.expand collapse
