Foundations + Pulled Resources Wheelbarrow Cavalcade

It is the end of a truly wonderful and ambitious week here in Foundations. Our wheelbarrow building and customization workshop, based on Pulled Resources Community Camaro project helped you each develop new technical skills and collaborative methods. Remember that the wheelbarrows will be exhibited at SUNY Geneseo in mid-October, so you have about a month to continue modifying, if you choose. Here are a few photos from the parade (more will be posted soon).

A big thanks to Dan and Thomas for leading us this week!

Hello, you’ve reached the Division of Foundations at Alfred University, New York College of Ceramics, School of Art + Design, in Alfred, New York.

Here you can find info about happenings, classes, and visitors, as well as practical info for new students such as how to register, graduation expectations, and guides to technology and tools. There is also a link to the Foundations Flickr page, where you can get a peek at the 2013 Foundations Exhibition and student work!

A special welcome to our newly accepted students!  You will join over 120 other bright young artists as they begin their educational journeys at AU’s School of Art + Design! Before you arrive on campus, you’ll need to take care of a number of things. The Alfred Foundation Blog will walk you through your first steps! Take some time and read the blog starting with the titles under ‘Getting Started’ (over there -> in the right column). For questions, email Shelly Grant at grantsh@alfred.edu in the School of Art + Design Office.

Check back often, as it is always changing!

Have a good summer.

Welcome Back!

We hope that you have all had a restful break, re-connected with family and friends — perhaps even missing your new home in Alfred? We are busily planning the spring semester and have some important information to share with you.

You have all been divided into new groups for the spring semester.  There are 4 groups ( A, B, C, D). The spring semester is organized differently from the Fall in that you will be engaged in 4, six-week long workshops. These workshops build on many of the themes and skills that you have built last semester and introduce new ways of working.

They are: Drawing, Color, Systems and Time.  Each group will be assigned to 2 workshops during A block and 2 workshops during B block.  These workshops will run during our normal Foundations class time from 8-11 am. Classes will be held int he following studios: Drawing: Cohen Studio main floor, Color: Cohen studio basement, Time: Harder Hall Studio, Systems: Harder Hall Studio.

Below you’ll find the Group List, that shows which group you belong to and the second one shows your group’s workshop schedule.

We’ve already posted material lists requested by each professor on this blog. Please make sure that you buy the materials for the specific section you are assigned to. Use the name of the professor to know which section. Two sections, Systems and Color, are using the same materials list. Please have all materials purchased before arriving back to school as you all know how hard it is to find them near Alfred.

We look forward to seeing all of you soon!  Don’t forget to check your Alfred email when you return to campus for any late breakin’ news.
