Art department in new temp home


The Art Department has moved to new digs. If you're looking for your art classes, we may have hidden them from you.

The ceramics and sculpture classroom has moved to the old Graphic Arts building. Professor Lucy Snow has been busy readying the kilns and getting the workspace ready. It is located to the northwest of the current Child Study Center, hidden behind a green fence.

Graphics has moved to what was the old Reading & Writing Center. That's right, room CC2-265: the large, but hidden, classroom on level CC 2. But the best part is that we have brand shiny new iMac computers with 24-inch screens and the latest versions of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. We even have a few new chairs! It a wonderful new space.

Painting and drawing are also next door, as are offices for professors Ken Alexander, Lucy Snow and Curtis Corlew.

But don't write any of this in ink as this is only temporary! In about three semesters (Spring 2011), we'll all be moving back to our space on CC 3. It will be completely remodeled and bigger, better, faster, get more miles per gallon and make you even smarter than ever before. It will feature an expanded ceramics and sculpture area, and new classrooms for painting, drawing and graphics.

2D design values

closeup value assignment, originally uploaded by losmedanosart. This extreme detail is from Shelly Boyd's self portrait. Students in Dawn Black's 2D design class painted nine different values on separate pieces of paper, cut varied shapes and then assembled them into portraits. Shelly's whole piece is below.

Books by photography students

The final project for LMC Photo II students is to create a book on a unified concept. These small posters are mock-ups — hung from string with extra-cute tiny clothespins on level 3 of the college complex— of the larger posters that might appear in bookstores promoting their self-published books.









Light and high school students

Six local high schools visited us for Career Focus Friday. We gave them a tour of the art and graphics areas, but thought it would be better to demonstrate what we do, and let them have a little fun. We set up a makeshift studio with beautiful portrait light at one end and "monster light" at the other. We made a few demonstration photos, then let them go to town with their camera phones. I think we were a hit.
