New York Summer Studio Survey (With Color)
July 10 – 30, 2016
Faculty Leader – James Woodfill, Associate Professor, Painting Department
In this three-credit, three week intensive studio course, students will focus on an investigation of the New York City urban environment. Prompted by a series of readings about color, its use and theory, this class will proceed through this formal lens as an immersive investigation of place, along with immediate studio responses. As a cross-disciplinary environment, a variety of “portable” or “agile” processes will be encouraged for making such as drawing and collage, photography, videography, writing and journaling.
Participants are encouraged to explore the city – group visits to museums, galleries and studios, along with walks through the city are planned to augment an intensive studio environment. We will have the opportunity to meet a number of working artists in the city through studio visits and critiques. We will be working towards a synthesis of reconnaissance and response, as we live and operate within the city.
