ART 3 final reviews

IN THE WOODSHOP | In order for students to complete much of their coursework, they must be trained to use the woodshop safely . All students wishing to use the shop must go through the Design Labs certification process.

Instruction by Professor Forsyth in the woodshop here
and here with Mike. A fully outfitted furniture shop, students and faculty can create exquisite works of art or fully functional prototypes.

Final review in Drawing I
Sculpture I studio
and critique
Successful Figure studio final reviews require quality feedback. Food helps. Professor Gans keeps the crowd happy with a filling breakfast.
Professor Crow held ART 220 Modern Art in the LUAG seminar room.
Each ART 220 student was responsible for discussing an artist and their work at the Spring 2019 Open Reception at the Lehigh University Art Gallery in the Siegel Gallery in Iacocca Hall.
Professor Kart | ART 221 Global Contemporary Art.
Professor Kart showed students around the Chelsea Contemporary Art Galleries this Spring on a AAD sponsored bus trip into the city. It's always a great time for a selfie!

Professor Forsyth and Furniture Design students visited the Wharton Esherick Museum outside of Phila. To see more of the day, click the link below.

Phia in the wood shop and
a view of her bench built in Furniture Design. Photos taken in the lighting studio are available to all AAD students for the use of documenting student work for portfolio or to complete projects for photography studios. No need to know how to use a camera, studio monitors are there to help during the regular academic year. Contact the AAD department to learn more.
One example of when a student puts it all together. Final project built in the woodshop and using the laser cutter for Graphic Design III Branding Experience.
The requirements of the final project in Graphic Design III was to design an innovative and sustainable package. Here a student separates four boxes of cereal that were initially connected as one. Students developed their designs in the lab and printed their designs using AAD printers located in C1 with the help of work study lab monitors. Students continued to work on assembling their projects in the C1 highbay. And wah-la...ready for the grocery store shelf.
Final presentation in GD III required students to explain how they came about their innovative package design.
