Faculty field trip

Deyoung Post Impressionists exhibit
We don't just tell our students to go see art, we do it ourselves.

Despite huge backups on the Bay Bridge, Ken Alexander, Lucy Snow and Curtis Corlew managed to drag their significant others and a colleague from Marin to the deYoung Museum to see the Post Impressionist show. It was a beautiful day in the city, which explains the lack of parking and the 37,000 people attending the exhibit with us. Even though there was no air to breath, and we spent a lot of time looking at the backs of people, the show itself was simply amazing. If you can get there at all, do it.

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.
