0.0 stars

Subject engages a dialogue with architecture and urbanism from the perspective of the visual artist. Ideas investigated thematically from early modernist practices to the most recent examples of contemporary production. Art making as an adjunct to the design process is challenged by both synthetic and critical models of production. Visual art practice is examined as a conceptual prologue to architectural and urbanistic thinking, as an integrated part of the design process, and as a critical epilogue. Lectures and discussions lead to the development of realized projects to be coordinated with architectural studio. This seminar engages in the notion of space from various points of departure. The goal is first of all to engage in the term and secondly to examine possibilities of art, architecture within urban settings in order to produce what is your interpretation of space.

Rating
0.0 stars

This class is jointly sponsored by the MIT Museum, Massachusetts Bay Maritime Artisans, the Department of Mechanical Engineering's Center for Ocean Engineering, and the Department of Architecture. The course teaches the fundamental steps in traditional boat design and demonstrates connections between craft and modern methods. Instructors provide vessel design orientation and then students carve their own shape ideas in the form of a wooden half-hull model. Experts teach the traditional skills of visualizing and carving your model in this phase of the class. After the models are completed, a practicing naval architect guides students in translating shape from models into a lines plan. The final phase of the class is a comparative analysis of the designs generated by the group.

The transition from high school and home to college and a new living environment can be a fascinating and interesting time, made all the more challenging and interesting by being at MIT. More than recording the first semester through a series of snapshots, this freshman seminar will attempt to teach photography as a method of seeing and a tool for better understanding new surroundings. Over the course of the semester, students will develop a body of work through a series of assignments, and then attempt to describe the conditions and emotions of their new environment in a cohesive final presentation.

This open resource was created by Texas Woman’s University undergraduate students in an upper-level visual arts course titled Issues in Contemporary Art.  Working in groups, the students created at total of seven lesson plans that explore the themes: Art and Disability, Dark Surrealism, Eco-Art, Expressing Identity with the Human Body, Kitsch in Art, Mental Health/Illness in Art, and The Gaze Sexuality and Perceptions of the Female Body. The themes covered in the lesson plans were student-generated and reflect current student interests in contemporary art.  Each lesson plan contains a curated background reading list, suggested artists and artworks to examine, discussion questions, short artist biographies, and additional resources.  The structure of the lesson plan is modeled after the Art History Teaching Resources (AHTR) (http://arthistoryteachingresources.org/).
