Topics 3D: Ceramic Sculpture

Fall 2020

Taught By: JJ Peet

Section: A

CRN: 3296

Credits: 3

Clay is the most direct material we have for making objects. From brain to hand to sculpture, this course is focused on a way of building that filters the students' own personal narrative and current events through the hand made. From traditional techniques to contemporary mixed media strategies, this sculpture course will provide students with a foundation in the ceramic process, its history and its relevance to contemporary art making. Rigorous critiques and presentations will help students find their individual voice in a medium that dates back millennia.

Topics in 3D: City as Studio

Fall 2020

Taught By: Ester Partegas

Section: B

CRN: 1958

Credits: 3

The city is a place that continuously generates material for artists, from physical things and images, to embodied experiences and narratives. We will make work inspired by the “outside,” with field trips to various sites for observing, experimenting, recording, and collecting materials with which to create works. In order to explore different urban phenomena, we will divide the course into 4 short modules as follows: surfaces, choreographies, things, and signs. Each module will engender an individual, collective or collaborative project, to be developed through the close reading of texts, and examination of artists like Yuji Agematsu, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Abigail DeVille, Tehching Hsieh and Francis Alÿs. The class is open to all disciplines and modes of expression.

Topics 3D: Interconnections

Spring 2020

Taught By: Miggy Buck

Section: A

CRN: 5240

Credits: 3

This course will focus on the interconnections between people's lives and modern society. We will explore topics such as mass media, identity, politics, and the environment. Students will be encouraged to explore various media to convey their own perspectives on the interconnected relations between themselves and the world they inhabit. Through presentations and gallery visits students will be introduced to artists who exemplify this approach including Guadalupe Maravilla, E.V. Day, Martha Rosler, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Richard Prince, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Smithson and Andy Goldsworthy. By utilizing the facilities in the Making Center, students will continue developing hands-on making skills so everyone in class can build their sculptures or installations with integrity and confidence.

Topics 3D: SculptureCraft

Spring 2020

Taught By: JJ Peet

Section: B

CRN: 1953

Credits: 3

In this course we consider why we choose the materials we do to make art. We will consider three ways of dealing with sculpture: the found object, raw materials and hands-on craft. By using the resources of the Making Center, we will merge the craft of construction with meanings conveyed by materials. We will pay attention to the origin, environmental impact, political meaning and physical properties of materials. We will ask if a material has memory or can be infused with magic? This course is focused on a way of building that synthesizes the students’ personal narratives and current events with the hand made.
