  • Rendering female models and celebrities on large-scale canvases and with quick, expressive brushstrokes, painter Katherine Bernhardt examines representations of beauty in mainstream media and fashion photography. She paints her subjects with severe, exaggerated features and emaciated limbs that sometimes morph into abstraction, recalling the works of Pablo Picasso. “Some people ask if I hate the models I paint,” she says. “I say no, I don't hate them.

  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. 

    We're excited the film’s director Brian Knappenberger will be our special guest speaker for the Q & A moderated by Movies that Matter series producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin after the screening.

Continuing Education Course

SEM: 39


Digital Art Play


In this course, students learn to use an iPad or similar tablet, to expand their creativity and generate digital art forms. Participants learn to download simple user friendly art applications (apps) and are instructed in their use. Free apps provide digital crayons, markers, and paint, all immediately accessible to the participant’s fingertips. Once students have mastered the basics (opening a new file, using the various drawing/painting tools, saving or emailing the resulting artwork file, accessing a saved file) a more complex, inexpensive, art app (with layers, expanded color pallets, multiple brushes featuring opacity and size controls, image transformation options, text inclusion) is purchased and downloaded; and students receive instruction in its use. In the same way you might play a game on your phone, students develop the ability to use creative art practices for relaxation, recreation, and communication. Emphasis is on abstract and folk art styles of representation, graphic design, and sharing through visual communication. Experimentation and exploration is encouraged.

Prerequisite: Students provide their own iPad or similar tablet
