Study Abroad/Off-Campus: Advanced Studio Residency: West Coast of Ireland
Dates: July 13-August 3, 2013 (depart the US on July 12) *Note: Dates and itinerary subject to change
This class will meet in the studio facilities of the Burren College of Art, an art school located on the grounds of a sixteenth century castle amidst the spectacular western Irish seacoast.
This course is designed on an open studio or residency model. Students will have the freedom and time to focus on and develop independent projects, detached from the conventions and constraints of traditional curriculum.
Each student will be provided with studio space for the entire residency, enabling full engagement with his or her work, free from distraction. Peter Power and Judith Geichman will be available to meet with students for individual discussion and critiques. There will also be group critiques as well as numerous informal sessions. Presentations will be given on Irish music (from traditional to Post-Punk), Irish literature and History (from Stone age to Post Colonial, Post Celtic tiger). Field trips, readings, and explorations of Irish culture and the ruggedly beautiful landscape will provide an expansive and rare environment in which to work.
