ARTSTUDI 19N: An Artist's Life: Diverse Voices and Changing Contexts

This course is designed for students considering an Art Practice minor or major. In this course, students gain confidence and experience connecting to their artistic voices as we explore the myriad possible career paths artists take to build sustainable careers. The course consists of a series of studio projects, each centered around a different artist whose career and art practice we study. The example artists will be primarily artists of color, or artists from communities which are underrepresented in the art world, with practices and careers ranging from the conventional to the more unusual. The goal of these artist selections is to model the possibilities of an art career for students who do not easily see themselves well represented in the mainstream art world, while also broadening all students¿ understanding of the many different methods for making work and practicing as an artist today.

Basic painting skills are incorporated throughout the quarter, with advanced options at each stage. Acrylic paint is versatile and fast-drying; we will use it to get a range of effects from washy watercolor, blended oil effects, and building the surface sculpturally, painting on different surfaces. As we move, we will consider the elements of site and the materiality of paint: water, earth, architecture and the nuance of human gesture. History and memory are parsed in both the visible and hidden worlds around us. On-site paintings are not touched after class; rather they exist as an ephemeral moments in time.

Adventure is our priority; weather is our co-creator. Final projects will be based on individual concepts, allowing each person to stretch creatively and develop their own voice.

ARTSTUDI 160X: Tele-Reality: Live-Streaming Art

This course examines the field of live-feed media through the lens of art practice, exploring previous experiments and the potential of the medium. Using social media outlets and user-to-user communication platforms¿such as Youtube, FaceTime, Twitch, Instagram, and closed-circuit cameras¿students will create moments for captive audiences using displacement as a medium. By nature, live streaming is a fleeting digital performance that combines television, theater, and film practices with internet platforms and physical venues to present single performances or series of performances, pre-recorded footage, or improvisational scenes. nnLive-streaming opens an opportunity for borderless expression, to express social change, to share non-mainstream messages, and allows access to massive communication to diverse voices and perspectives.
