Paint and Landscape: Material as Narrative

PAINTING 624 001 1 credit hour
Instructor: Claire Sherman

This multilevel painting course will investigate painting as a form of language, where color, surface, and marks are considered as indicative of narrative. Students will consider questions such as: how do light, space, and color suggest narrative? How do surface and mark-making direct the reading of a painting, and how can meaning morph based on context? Using direct observation of the landscape as a jumping off point, students will be encouraged to work from other sources, such as memory and photographs. We will also examine painting in both contemporary and historical contexts. Oil paint will be supported, with demonstrations on techniques and material properties of oil. However, other media such as watercolor, gouache, and acrylic will also be supported for multi-level students.

Image and Surface

CER 630 001 3 credit hours
Instructor: Israel Davis Mat Rude
200 Studio & Lab Fee

surface: screen printing and wood firing. These seemingly disparate approaches can be used in combination to create fantastically unpredictable results. We will look at historical and contemporary uses of pattern, graphic imagery, and narratives as they relate to ceramic surface design. Demonstrations will include print making with slip, image transfer, and the wood firing process. The goal of this course is to facilitate individual projects through experimentation.

Material Bodies in Time and Space

PERF 604 001 3 credit hours
Instructor: Ginger Krebs Bryan Saner

This course will approach materiality, the physical body, and site from trans-media and time-based perspectives.

Through observation, writing, building, movement workshops, and lectures participants will propose and respond to ideas of intertwined lives. Participants will also spend time designing, re-building, and repurposing materials and found items into performative objects. This two-week course will culminate in a live, interdisciplinary site-specific performance.

Work

PRINT 625 001 3 credit hours
Instructor: Michelle Grabner Sara Greenberger-Rafferty
100 Studio & Lab Fee

This co-taught class calls into question genre specificity and thematic orientation and instead examines the constructs and the philosophical tenets of work.

Focusing on the manners of work that typically define art schools and residencies as well as the research into the history of a Midwestern work ethic will be foreground. Discussions regarding labor, duties, tasks, exertion, and industry will augment physical studio projects. Based in Oxbow’s print studio, a range of printmaking methods and techniques will be available to students but they will not obligatory for participation in this class.

The Zen of Bowls and Cane

GLASS 621 001 1 credit hour
Instructor: Kait Rhoads
150 Studio & Lab Fee

From Surface to Space: Reading the Context of Paint

PAINTING 629 001 3 credit hours
Instructor: Kevin Appel Martin Basher

This multi level course is designed to expand students command of both craft and content through individually developed painting projects. The course is geared toward developing your painting practice as an artist beyond the classroom environment. Discussion will center on how your choices of format, materials, image and contextual alignment all inform the reading of your work. Painting is actualized through a free or creative relationship to pictorial space and the historical context in which it is produced. The literal space of the canvas support acts as a field in which the issues pertaining to the armature of the medium are played out along side the imagery of the chosen subject.
From deep space to the abstract surface of the support itself, space becomes the cue as to how the picture is interpreted. Issues of transport, duration, and plausibility are acted out as a methodology for understanding the position of the painting. The course will include extensive experimentation with techniques and imagery through individual painting problems. All mediums are accepted and experimentation with formal and material options as part of the painting process in relation to form and meaning will be stressed.
Students will pursue various interests in subject matter around the issues of space and facture. Lectures and critiques will be included.
