The Artist Book Now: Narrative and Form
Course No. PRI432 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Jennifer Craun
This studio course is for students interested in producing sequentially developed imagery via linear book structures. Historical examples and contemporary developments regarding the evolution of the artist book are examined through texts, through the use of our library's artist book collection, in discussion, and during critiques. Due to technological advancements over the last century artists now have a variety of media with which to explore output of book projects. The class will expose students to the nature and potential of different book structures as well as a variety of materials. The course will heighten the student's ability to utilize the interaction of sequenced content -- the act of turning pages-- to express the continuity of an idea flowing through a continuum. Students realize the potential of narrative, sequence, and pacing, together with the importance of combining word and image. Note: Open Elective. Required for Fourth Year Print Majors. 3 credits.
The Liberated Print: Investigation of Alternative Methods
This course creates a context for students to negotiate the challenging and complex issues embedded in the making of contemporary printed images. Projects and techniques complement and extend methods of traditional processes, allowing students room to invent, arrange, analyze and create connections through more immediate printmaking methods to their major fields of study. This class will concentrate on the intuitive, spontaneous and fluid approaches in printmaking such as; monoprint, collagraph, transfer drawing, Xerox litho, and wood intaglio, instigating the dialog between the limited edition vs. singular print, and the original vs. a copy. We will consider formats that bridge other disciplines working with color, installation and three-dimensional/sculptural constructions with considerations to work on paper. The course will offer experiences that provide the tools to understand print media within a contemporary framework. Note: Open elective. Encouraged for third and fourth year students with a painting and drawing emphasis as an Elective Studio. Required for Third Year Print Majors.
Working Collaboratively + Group Dynamics
Course No. VAT354/454 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. This course will focus on how the presentations of images, and objects have been effected by changing social and cultural perspectives and the technologies of reproduction. 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. Through classroom discussion, lectures, and studio assignments the social, historical, cultural, technological context that gave rise to the current practices of collage, assemblage and installation will be elaborated. This course is open to majors from all disciplines and students will be encouraged to apply their area of expertise to assignments and classroom readings and discussion. This course is open to students from all disciplines and is not media specific.
