Through historical and contemporary examples students will be able to create their own talisman and amulets through basic jewelry and metalsmithing skills. This class is designed for all levels and participants will be given ‘low tech’ options that can be taken back into the classroom that would be appropriate for k-12. The workshop will also feature a visiting artist and educator as well as a museum visit. The online portion will emphasize the development and preparation of visual art lessons that feature contemporary and historical jewelry making and align with national core art standards and teach 21st century skills.

What are the forces that the arts bring to bear on the shaping of culture? This four-day summer institute will provide art teachers and art museum educators and administrators with an understanding of how the arts have functioned to enhance the cultural life of one city: Philadelphia. Using the city as a case study, workshop participants will consider how the people, art forms, and cultural institutions function as contributors and beneficiaries of urban life. Onsite visits to the city’s architectural features, parks, museums, community centers, community initiatives, and artists’ studios will provide participants with an opportunity to understand the range of efforts that contribute to the vibrancy of this metropolitan community. This four-day workshop will be accompanied by an online course which uses arts-based research to inform curriculum development.

ARU/CFT 542/888 July 21 – August 12, 2018 Online Course
(online course cannot be taken without also enrolling in the Workshop)

This course will remove the quilt from the strict confines of utilitarian purpose to create new life through your own developed narrative.  Story quilts are a highly effective medium that give the viewer a tactile experience through the exploration of identity, family, cultures, or an imagined story.  Hone your narrative skills through symbolism, color, pattern, and line work.  The art quilt utilizes traditional and contemporary methods of creation.  Three different methods will be explored:  whole cloth, piecing, and a particular focus on appliqué.  Through the quilting process, you will learn and use a variety of surface design techniques to further personalize your narrative.  This course will cultivate your understanding of well-established and emerging narrative quilt artists to help inform your own creations.

A Refined Palette: Nourishing a Unique Approach to Color in the Ceramic Process

ARU/CFT 888/543 July 23 - August 3, 2018 Onside Workshop at Kutztown University
ARU/CFT 543/888 August 4 - August 17, 2018 Online Course
(online course cannot be taken without also enrolling in the Workshop)

Spend two weeks immersed in the ceramics studio and engage with the raw materials of clay and glazes to craft a more confident approach to color in your art work and in your classroom.  In this studio intensive workshop, participants will learn to develop intentional color and surface through the manipulation of ceramic materials as well as commercial clays and glazes.  Our focus will be on articulating our aesthetic intentions and creating a color palette that reflects our emotional and physical perceptions of the world.  During our time together, participants will learn how to formulate and adjust clay and glaze recipes; perform color runs, line blends and more complicated blends; and experiment with various application methods. Our two guest artists, Birdie Boone and Lindsay Rogers, will each share insights on creating expressive utilitarian work with an intentional color palette.  Focusing on tableware and kitchenware frames our color work within the sensual and cultural experiences we have within contemporary food culture.  Participants will be creating work both on the wheel and on the table, with extensive clay and glaze testing as the backbone of their inquiry.
