The Selfish Giant Trailer
Senior Studio: BFA Research
Course No. PTG421M Credits: 3.0
Faculty Lane Cooper
Required for all 4th year Painting majors and open as an elective to any senor-level student with a prerequisite of Intro to Painting or permission of the instructor or Painting Chair. This course focuses on developing the student’s individual work as it relates to their subject and their means of making work. Emphasis will be on the strategies for constructing the meaning of the work in terms of materials and the way the work is read by a viewer. Students will read work, develop and discuss intention through critiques and discourse. The goal is to develop an understanding of the criteria, standards and values promoted by the artist and how these come to be understood by their audience by exploring the relationship between subject, form, material and process as they relate to content. Offered fall.
The Artist + Social Practice
Course No. VAT267/367/467 Credits: 3.0
This course explores a realm of artistic endeavor apart from the Western canon and the gallery art system. As such, students will work within the greater social context, applying their skills to pressing issues such as urban decay and poverty, ecology (brown fields, waste, pollution) violence, and other issues stemming from contradictions between the wants and needs of the individual and the wants and needs of the greater society. Histories of artists working in these arenas will provide a starting point and a model for student work. Each student will research issues that are of personal concern, present their findings to the class. This will be followed by discussions around problem solving and efficacy of action. Projects will then be developed and implemented.
The Tactile + The Digital: Painting in the New Century
Course No. PTG21X Credits: 3.0
Prerequisite(s) Intro to Painting: Painting History: 1828-Present
The focus of this course is the role of Painting in the digital age. Students will use varied media and subjects, traditional and non- traditional, to further develop analytical and expressive means in their painting and creative practices. Students are encouraged to draw from personal interests and from many disciplines to develop projects that will be presented to the class for group critiques. Through slide presentations, gallery visits museum shows, and readings, information will be presented relating to the current art scene in order to further the student’s personal vision, help clarify directions, and explore a variety of formal, conceptual, and technical approaches to painting and image-making. Projects will address, among others, ideas and forms of light and space, color relationships, means and meanings of representation, text and texture, and gender, social and political issues. This course is open to all students with the prerequisite of Intro to Painting or with the permission of the instructor.
Water+: An Exploration of Water-Based Media
This course explores the different materials and processes used in various water-based media such as acrylic, gouache, watercolor, ink, and other natural substances that can be used to make colors/washes. Various historical models will be examined such as Chinese scroll painting and watercolor from the Song dynasty to Renaissance architecture and figure studies to post-impressionist use of color and mark which will put contemporary use of water-based media into focus. The work of artists as varied as William Blake, Vincent Van Gogh, Charles Burchfield, and Paul Klee to more recent artists such as Francesco Clemente, Marlene Dumas, Amy Cutler, Shazia Sikander, and Franz Ackermann, will be examined within the context of the student’s personal practice. This course is open to all students with the prerequisite of Intro to Painting or with the permission of the instructor.
Working Collaboratively: Art + The Group Dynamic
Course No. PTG25X/35X/45X Credits: 3.0
Though the image of the artist is that of the solitary individual striving to express their vision Ð the contemporary practice of art is peppered with numerous examples of artists collaborating. These extend form something as simple as organizing a group exhibition, to the type of social interventions practiced by the Guerrilla Girls or the work of such entities as Gilbert and George, or the collective N55. This course through projects, readings, and critiques will explore the dynamic of working collaboratively. Each exercise will address different processes, skill-sets and interpersonal relationships. This course is open to students from all disciplines and is not media specific.
