  • Looking at the recent works of Sebastian Stumpf one finds an interplay between performance and the recording of performance, between the execution of a physical act and the documentation of it by means of a camera. [He] operates in two distinct realms: in the empty spaces of contemporary art institutions and in urban settings with their preexisting orders. […] An inconspicuous architectural detail suddenly becomes the catalyst for a physical exploit…. The art gallery becomes a space for action.

Continuing Education Course

Leonardo's Apprentice: Ages 5-8

When Leonardo da Vinci was young, he apprenticed with an older more experienced artist to learn the art trade. This early art experience introduced Leonardo to various materials and techniques: grinding and mixing pigments, learning geometry, mixing of colors, preparing panels, working of clay, and the actual act of painting itself. Using the old and modern masters as inspiration, students learn the fundamental techniques and principles of art. In this course, young apprentices are introduced to basic art concepts including use of color, line, shape, texture, and composition, while learning a range of technical methods used by the masters themselves. Students learn to use various sculpture, drawing, and painting materials. The course takes place in a nurturing atmosphere, which stresses experimentation and exploration. The course is designed to heighten sensory awareness and build self-confidence in fundamental art making skills.

First class materials: $35 lab fee payable to instructor for supplies.

• On the first day of classes all students must check in with Continuing Education staff before attending class. Look for the signs on campus directing you to check in.
