Art Education Everywhere

Ken Alexander took is design drawing class outside to work on trees. He's not the only art instructor to take learning outside the traditional classroom.  From gallery and museum visits to on-site art creation we all enjoy getting out and interacting with the real world.

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.

Strung out on 3-D design

Lucy Snow's 3-D design class had an assignment to create a “structure” that defined space and that directed how they could twist their bodies through it. Several groups worked on it in the public areas of the college, to the amusement and surprise of those passing by. I should make a yarn pun here, but it's too early in the semester for that.

The art of social justice

Rebecca Talley challenged her  Color Theory class to use the universal language of art to create posters for social justice.  Students used  their individual voices to speak to social change. You can see more of these works in the temporary installation just outside the Art department entrance on the first level of the college complex.
