City Studio Looking for Lead Teacher to Start Immediately

Looking for a lead teacher starting Mid-Oct. 2015 through May 2016.

If interested please forward Resume/CV and description of relevant experience and interest to Debra Samdperil, SMFA Assoc. VP, Non-Degree Programs: dsamdperil@smfa.edu immediately.


City Studio: BPS/SMFA Partnership High School Art Program:

One afternoon per week (TBD Tues. Wed. or Thurs) 4:00-6:00 pm for 21 weeks

City Studio is a studio based after-school art program established through a partnership between BPS and SMFA that gives Boston Public School students the opportunity to make and exhibit their work while exploring contemporary art and historical art movements. Visits to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, National Center for Afro-American Artists and the galleries on the South End will complement studio courses in Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Installation, Photography and Video. Portfolio building, technical instruction, mentoring, and installation skills will also be developed throughout the year.

Course Description
City Studio 2015/16 will guide students to delve deeper into their own personal history, cultural upbringing, and preconceived notions of reality, by engaging them in exploring contemporary art and art historical movements while creating their own personal artwork.

Our mission is to rethink, reflect, re-contextualize how high school artists think about art through their interactions with artists, instructors, institutions, galleries, and materials that will expose them to new and innovative ways of creating art. This twenty-one week after school program dedicated to constant dialogue, object development, field trips and visits with local artists will ignite the flames of inspiration each student holds within; resulting in an invaluable and formative art experience.

A weekly homework assignment will be given to help students develop independence, focus, and their own personal approach to making art. During the course of the program students will have the opportunity to exhibit in a mid-semester exhibition as well as a final exhibition.

An exhibition is mandatory and is used to evaluate student development throughout the course by assessing the formal components of visual arts incorporated into their work. Students will also work on building a portfolio and all students will receive one course credit towards high school graduation upon successful completion of the program.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL:

BDEA is Horace Mann charter public school serving its mission to prepare students who have dropped out of high school, and/or who are between the ages of 16 and 23 and at least two years behind traditional grade level, for success in college or career. Working with experienced faculty in an environment that blends strong academics with social and emotional supports, students are given the opportunity to earn their diploma using a competency-based curriculum that inspires critical and creative thinking, independent learning, and active citizenship. Competency education is a system that allows students to progress in classes based on demonstration of knowledge; to always be challenged but not overwhelmed by material; and to move at a pace that suits their individual learning style and life circumstances. BDEA does not have grades 9, 10, 11 and 12, nor do we use Carnegie Units (A, B, C, D, F) to measure knowledge of content. Instead, students are assessed on the material they have learned by meeting benchmarks (the rungs on the ladder leading to each of 300 competencies), all of which are aligned to the Common Core Standards. Our extended program, beginning at nine a.m. and running until six p.m., serves students with a variety of academic and personal challenges, including those who are being promoted from middle school without being academically prepared for high school; those who have dropped out of high school and have decided to return to earn a diploma, and those who are unable to attend regular school hours due to a variety of outside issues and obligations.

Revisioning Art Education at Montserrat College of Art with “Beyond the Lesson Plan: A Dialogue on Teaching and Learning in the Arts”

Beyond the Lesson Plan:

A Dialogue on Teaching and Learning in the Arts

Saturday, April 4, 2015: 10am – 6:30pm


Montserrat Galleries is thrilled to host Beyond the Lesson Plan: A Dialogue on Teaching & Learning in the Arts on April 4, 2015. Inspired by radical developments within the field of Art Education and an increasing emphasis on teaching, learning and pedagogy as media in contemporary art, Curator of Education Maggie Cavallo was inspired to create a platform for conversation around these topics. Beyond the Lesson Plan will include three presentations exploring the ways we learn with and through the arts, how this affects our communities and classrooms and the potential for arts learning to spur social change.

 

Workshop and Events Schedule:

10:30 – 12:00 PM Why We Make Art: Nansi Guevara & Moana ‘Ulu’ave

Art Education is a moment of recognition, an understanding
of why you make art, your passion to share it and how these intentions, shared amongst arts educators, can have a direct effect on social change. In this workshop, Guevara, ‘Ulu’ave and our audience will share stories of creating art in abundance, in scarcity and as resistance through writing, drawing and sketching. Identifying the connections and networks between our shared experiences, we will complete the fist steps of developing a shared vision, key to social justice work in arts education.

 

1:00 – 2:30pm– Exercises for the Quiet Eye: Dr. Annie V.F. Storr

Storr will share with us an ensemble of guided-looking techniques she has developed for classrooms, museums, galleries and lifelong learning or spiritual communities. These extensions of inquiry-based methods of art interpretation open up from quiet, centered experiences aimed to help viewers slowdown and avoid a rush to premature “understanding.”

 

2:30 – 4:00pm– Challenging Ableism through Arts Education: 

Tasha Chemel, Hannah Hanssenss-Reed and Ava Kerr 

Ableism exists everywhere and is rarely challenged. In this session we will think about two questions: what are our responsibilities as artists and educators to dismantle ableism? Are there qualities of the arts, and our knowledge as artists and educators that enable us to create opportunities to challenge ableism and nurture variability?

*Workshops Location: 23 Essex Street, Beverly MA, Room 201 

 

5:00 – 6:30pm– Student Poetry & Storytelling event with Moana ‘Ulu’ave

Join Moana ‘Ulu’ave and Montserrat students for a Student Poetry and Storytelling event. Listen to works created by your campus community throughout the week during Moana’s class visit to Creative Writing and open hours in the Writing Studio.

*Event Location: Montserrat Main Gallery 

 

 

You Must Register for This Event: 

REGISTER via email to Maggie.Cavallo@montserrat.edu

Please include your contact information and which session(s) you plan to attend.

*Sessions are free to students, pay-what-you wish for staff, alumni and the general public.

Register HERE

Sponsored by the Art Education Department,
the Grad Programs at MassArt, the Liberal Arts Department, MassArt Student Development, and
the Office of Civil Rights and Diversity

 Three MassArt Departments are offering a FREE field trip to Dartmouth College to view two remarkable art exhibitions. Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties, reflects upon the  Civil Rights Movement in this 50th year anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act and the Supreme Court case, Brown vs. the Board of Education, both of which occurred in 1964. The Hood Gallery on the campus of Dartmouth College is one of only three locations in the country to host this powerful art exhibit of pieces responding to civil events of the 1960s by 66 diverse artists. The exhibition offers a focused look at painting, sculpture, graphics, and photography from a decade defined by social protest and American race relations.

 

“Beauty and violence, art and evidence, tribulation and transcendence — so much sings out from these works,” says R.C. Baker, Village Voice, April 9, 2014 (see full review at http://digitalissue.villagevoice.com/publication/?i=204621&p=21)

 

The Epic of American Civilization, 24 painted panels mounted permanently in Dartmouth’s Baker-Berry Library, by the esteemed Mexican artist José Clemente Orozco, is an ambitious mural painted between 1932 and 1934 to document a unique perspective on the history of the Americas from the Aztecs to the New Deal. Considered one of the finest murals in the US, it was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 2013.

 We will travel in a bus from and to MassArt, leaving at 2:00 on Wednesday, October 8 from Tetlow Street outside Tower to the Dartmouth campus (about 2.5 hours). Bring food or take a break to eat at one of many near-by restaurants in the college area.
