Renaissance Man: Jason Tilk
Adv Projects: Fashion-Jewelry-Accessories
Course No. MET267X/367/467 Credits: 3
Faculty Matthew Hollern
Fashion has the power to transcend the mundane, to offer new and novel experiences, to transform the wearer, to empower and provoke, and to reflect and record the times in which we live. As artists and designers we live in a culture of unprecedented access to information, new ideas, materials, and technologies. Fashion-Jewelry-Accessories is designed to focus on the changing landscape of art and design, where we will examine history, concepts, design practices, materials and technologies toward fashion jewelry and accessories. Varied materials and techniques from self-directed exploration to advanced studio technologies will supplement the course to challenge conceptual growth, facilitate design, and present new means of fabrication. "Challenges" are presented to afford students the opportunity to conduct research and explore their own directions. Readings, essays, and discussion offer the integrated seminar experience. The course includes visiting artists/designers, a field trip, presentations, and demonstrations to support individual directions. Open to Jewelry and Metals majors and all electives. 3 credits.
CMC BFA Research & Thesis
Course No. CMC400.1 Credits: 3
Faculty Matthew Hollern
This course is designed to examine concepts and technologies of the Craft and Material Culture majors, and support the pursuit of work of individual direction. Subjects are presented to challenge students to conduct research and examine their own position.Ę Discussions and presentations vary to recognize the direction of the group and include singular object-driven problems, formal issues, and conceptual challenges.Ę The course includes group discussion, visiting artists, field trips and presentations. Each student will develop a thesis in support of the studio work. A mandatory mid-year review at the end of the fall semester will prepare students for the oral defense of the BFA exhibition. Required of all graduating CMC majors. Offered fall. Open to electives. 3 credits.expand collapse
CMC: BFA Statement & Exhibition
Course No. CMC401.1 Credits: 3
Faculty William Brouillard
The goal of this course is to explore the concepts of emotion and aesthetic expression. We will seek to understand how and why emotion and aesthetic expression are central concepts in the theory and practice of art and design. We seek a strategic perspective on art and design with particular attention to the concepts and methods of liberal arts. We seek to balance theory, practice and production and encourage innovation and creativity. We will investigate concrete examples of emotional and aesthetic expression in a variety of traditional and new media in art and design, exploring different subject matters, materials, forms and purposes. Final grades will be based on two components: class participation and written assignments. Offered spring. 3 credits.expand collapse
CMC: Creative Process & Materials Studies
Building upon the foundation skills developed in the first year of study, students will continue to explore the elements of design through their major area of study. The creative process as it relates to the materials one selects to work with will be the unifying inquiry. Sophomores from all majors in the Craft and Material Culture Environment will explore common themes while resolving assignments in the individual majors; ceramics, enamel, glass, jewelry and metals. The class will support the integration of each studentŐs acquired knowledge of drawing, design, and color with the development of skills related to the various CMC major programs. Offered fall. 3 credits.expand collapse
CMC: Digital Modeling & Making
Course No. CMC301.1 Credits: 3
Faculty Matthew Hollern
Craft & Material Culture Core 4 will explore the integration of computer-aided design (CAD) across the craft disciplines.Ę Building on the CMC Core 3 course, Digital Modeling and Making will address a range of new materials and technologies toward innovative applications across the range of Craft, new skills and knowledge from 3D modeling to computer aided manufacturing, and rapid prototyping. Projects will integrate design and output experiences toward exploration of new materials, patterns, molds, templates, models, and objects. The seminar/studio course includes weekly seminar discussions, presentations, and reviews as well as dedicated work in the studios, labs, and major spaces. Laptops are recommended but not required. Offered spring. 3 credits.expand collapse
CMC: Language of Material
As the sophomore Craft and Material Culture class matriculates to second semester, we will explore commonalities and differences in the language of each of our materials. Emphasis will be placed on the visual voice within each material, and in each materials process. This makes for interesting investigations/explorations within and across mediums. Historically then, are processes connected with the evolution of function? The class will explore inherent physical properties that may bring content and breadth to ideas born from the media itself. We will continue the process of research and ideation using these common themes, and explore through experimentation. Each studentŐs individual voice will begin to emerge. Fundamental techniques will be explored and practiced, stressing the practice of the maker. Idea-books /sketchbooks will continue to be worked on as an important part of the creative process. Offered spring. 3 credits.expand collapse
CMC: Surface and Image
Course No. CMC300.1 Credits: 3
Faculty Gretchen Goss
The third year of the Craft and Material Culture Core Curriculum will explore the integration of digital imaging, three-dimensional modeling, and the materials and processes associated with the four major departments. The fall semester course will specifically focus on application and integration of two-dimensional digital images on the surfaces and forms in clay, enamel, glass and metal. Through assignments that will encourage the use of digital technology for the development of image, pattern and texture, students will utilize and develop their skills with imaging software and explore how it translates into the various materials and surfaces. Offered fall. 3 credits.expand collapse
Enameling: Advanced Projects
Course No. ENA245A/345A/445A Credits: 3
Faculty Gretchen Goss
This course will focus on advanced and experimental processes with enamel. Processes may include but are not limited to: torchfiring, electroforming, grissaille, plique-a-jour, enameling on silver and gold. Advanced students are expected to continue their exploration of the medium, focusing on enamel techniques not covered in the beginning course. Students are encouraged to explore 3-dimensional formats and large-scale applications at the same time as mastering their skills in the processes previously learned. Graduating students are generally working independently on research and production of work for the BFA exhibit. Technical demonstrations will be based on the skill level of the students enrolled each semester. Required of enamel majors. Open to electives.
