About USCAD Originally intended as a preparatory program for degree studies in art, USCAD is a hands-on, flexibly designed Certificate of Attendance (non-credit/non-degree) that helps you build skills, confidence and understanding in the visual arts. Courses are structured to help you incrementally develop as you explore your own style and creativity. The end goal is to build a portfolio from one of four major streams: sculpture, painting, drawing or photography/digital imagery. This program also entails a portfolio review and final exhibition. You can complete the USCAD certificate in as little as one year (working full-time) and up to a maximum of five years (working part-time). Details are on our website. Download the USCAD Overview pdf and read the section under USCAD Completion Requirements.

Student Profile

Date: January 7, 2013, 7:00 pm Room 118, Williams Bldg.

USCAD is designed for all kinds of learners—from the novice to the mature student.

Classes are small—usually less than 10 or 15 people. Small class sizes ensure you have one-on-one time with your instructor and help foster a positive learning environment where you can easily connect with fellow students.

The Williams Building is located at 221 Cumberland Ave. N. Parking is available on Cumberland Avenue or at meters behind the building.

CPCA503 Printmaking & Traditional Image Making I

C

Traditional and contemporary image making and printmaking has played an important role in recording and communicating visual portrayals of historical events, cultural reflections, spiritual beliefs, literary stories and scientific knowledge. Through carved reliefs, friezes, frescoes, illustrations and artwork for newspapers, magazines, books, posters and reproductions of artists works, artists and story tellers have been able to reach out to the masses. This course will explore that history by indulging students in the image making techniques, processes, materials and basic tools and equipment used historically to make and reproduce images. Processes such as making scratch images, carved reliefs, friezes, rubbings, icon paintings, frescoes, wood block and lino/rubber block prints, prints from scratched/etched metal plates and prints using silk screen processes, will provide opportunity to relive some of the experiences and challenges of early and contemporary image makers.

Prerequisite: Glass Fusion II or equivalent experience In this workshop we will begin the process of developing plans & techniques needed for more complex fused glass pieces. We will discuss ideas of strip cutting, pot melts, textural treatments of vessel pieces, copper tooled inclusions, sandblasting, cold working and anything of interest that arises from the class. The first day will be spent designing and discussing projects, and running tests of some of the techniques. The individual projects will evolve from each participant, and be discussed by all. These can include starting larger bowl or platter shapes, multiple pieces, considerations in planning a fused glass sink, or a flat tile project. Students should bring with them a concept for a project to be started. As the projects develop, multiple firings will likely be needed to complete the project, so it is important that the participants have a kiln, and glass working tools at a home studio for the completion of the piece(s). Some glass will be provided, but you might want to bring any special Bullseye (or all you need of Spectrum 96) or special molds that you wish to work with.

ANNE MCELROY has been an artist for many years. Colour and rhythm, expressed by the unique properties of line and oil paint, are the means Anne uses to capture aspects of her environment. Her goal is to remain fresh, observant, and sensitive, always responsive and changing. Originally an “easterner”, she has found her 35 years on the prairies has provided the conditions she needs to sustain her art making. Works whose subject matter is derived from music and interiors somehow find their way into abstracted landscapes. In Anne’s work subtle prairie tones prompt imaginary colour, flatness encourages texture. Rhythm easily seems to come from stillness.

DAN MITTELHOLTZ: Instructional Design and Delivery Specialist with several years experience in instructor-led and web-based course design and development for the Higher Education, distance delivery and Classroom markets. Received Master’s Degree from University of Saskatchewan in instructional technology and design with emphasis on human-computer interaction and e-learning methodology. Fluency with design tools, multimedia applications, web-authoring applications, and business applications. Proven ability to develop and deliver dynamic and effective instructor-led and self-paced learning solutions. Dan recently worked with a team to develop online courses for Federated Co-operatives Limited digitizing training videos and providing support to learning facilitators delivering face-to-face seminars. ALICIA POPOFF has a BFA and a MFA from the University of Saskatchewan. She has been a practicing artist for more than twenty-five years with her main emphasis on painting. She works mostly in acrylic and mixed media such as collage using abstract imagery and is influenced by many sources including the beauty of the prairie countryside where she lives with her husband Leslie Potter. Light, colours and textures experienced through Alicia’s surroundings become integrated in an imaginative process with lines, marks and shapes. Many layers of paint and materials create a tactile surface, a physicality in the art which is important to her. She finds creating abstract, imaginative art with a tangible physicality to be very challenging and satisfying. Besides painting she has done sculpture, at times collaborating on large-scale pieces with Leslie Potter. She is represented locally by Art Placement and is in many collections. As well, she has had been in a number of public and private exhibitions. LES POTTER “I work with the energy of space and form. My pieces have a meditative quality, rooted in formalism and project a lyrical, fresh approach in the world of abstract sculpture. I offer sculpture that is permanent, authentic and contemplative” states Les Potter. Les has an ethereal relationship with the steel he works with for his welded steel sculptures and wall reliefs. Each sculpture speaks with a particular voice, and engages its surroundings and the viewer in conversation about life and all its mysteries. Potter has had a long and varied career as a sculptor/teacher. After numerous public commissions, his work is a well-recognized part of the urban landscape in Saskatchewan.

The University of Saskatchewan Arts Council is again pleased to be partnering with the Gordon Snelgrove Gallery, thanks to the efforts of Gallery Coordinator Gary Young. Our adjudication process, individual critiques, artist talk and public reception will all take place in the gallery. The Gordon Snelgrove Art Gallery is supported by the University of Saskatchewan, and receives external funding from the Museums Association of Saskatchewan and

Saskatchewan Lotteries. Throughout the province of Saskatchewan, local adjudications are hosted and funded partly by Arts Councils and by OSAC through Saskatchewan Lotteries. These programs promote the growth of culture by providing opportunities for visual artists and craftspeople to exhibit their work, and to develop critical skills through participation with adjudicators. Some artists may also have the opportunity to submit their work to be chosen to tour throughout the province in the “Saskatchewan... Art on the Move Program.” Works tour for two years and artists receive exhibitions fees based on the CARFAC minimum fee schedule. The adjudication process includes the submission of an application, installation of art works, adjudication, artist talk, individual critiques and a public reception. All activities will take place at the U of S Snelgrove Art Gallery. Please contact Carol Koch at 966.5574 for the Application Form for the Adjudication.
