Clay has a quiet power. Delicately precious, yet incredibly strong, it enlivens our sense of touch, yet heightens our sense of caution. This everyday material is a part of our collective consciousness. It holds our coffee in the morning today just as it held food and water in ancient Mesopotamia. Ceramic decorates our homes and our bodies. This rich history provides a backdrop to frame contemporary investigations into ritual, objecthood and artistic expression. This course emphasizes the unique sculptural processes and materiality of clay. Techniques will include hand building, slip casting, image transfers and wheel throwing. Students are encouraged to experiment with different strategies, including installation work, mixed-media projects, and a variety of experimental ceramic techniques.

CRN: 7844

Credits: 3

In this course we will explore what it means to be working in the expanded field of painting. We will be thinking about materiality, time, metaphor, fluidity, fixity and flux. We will look at and discuss a wide range of ideas underlying contemporary painting practice. As this is a studio-based course, there will be a number of studio assignments over the course of the semester, through which students will delve into the process-based, the temporal, the performative and the sculptural possibilities of painting. The use of both traditional and non-traditional painting media will be encouraged. Students working in an interdisciplinary mode are welcome, in addition to those primarily working in painting.
