Knolling: The Modern Technology Spin on the Ensemble
I am proud to say that our Barnes Partnership continues to grow; allowing students more museum visits. The Education Department is supportive of the classwork that comes from our experiences. They worked diligently steering us through the vetting process to allow for pulication of our book on the iTunes Store. All student work is shared back to Barnes in the hopes that other educators may learn from our experience.
Our Second Partnership: Moore College of Art and Design
Our partnership with Moore Is much less formal but equally as fruitful. It began last spring with conversations with both Admissions and the Galleries at Moore. Both asking:
What can we do for you and your students?
This year has started with admissions counselors visitng the classroom and my students visiting the Galleries. Through our relationship with Matt Kalasky. at the gallery, we were invited to participate in Art Crush.
The Art Crush Audio Tour is a community generated self-guided audio tour to the 2016 Faculty Triennial. The goal of this project is to illuminate a wide range of viewer responses and celebrate our personal connections to works of art.
Student groups were invited to participate in writing workshops at The Galleries at Moore. Through exercises that encouraged a wide range of unexpected responses, participants generated a personal vocabulary for the art on display. For example, draw this painting as a super hero or make up a dance move for this sculpture. The workshops culminated with participants writing and recording a personal “love letter” to a specific piece of art. The Art Crush Audio Tour is a compilation of theses individual recordings.
