“The SFAI PreCollege program challenged me

to push myself as an artist and taught me how to live independently in the city. The classes are rigorous yet fun, and are taught by amazing and experienced teachers who encouraged me throughout the artistic process. This summer has been filled with new experiences, adventures, and friends that have enriched my life and broadened my perspective of the world. —Mallory McCoy, Auburn, AL

Courses | In Full “By taking figure

drawing I learned to be more comfortable around the human figure and how to draw it. I also learned how to stylize my art and make it my own but using different mediums. Lastly I learned how to take the instructions my teachers had given mean to improve my art over all.

—Teddy Kleindl, Bozeman, MT

Expressive Figure Drawing

Learn to tell stories, communicate visually, and imagine new worlds through large- and small-scale drawings working from models and beyond, using a range of 2D media including charcoal, ink, graphite, gouache, and collage. By paying close attention to composition, line, value, and scale as related to the figure you will enhance your technical abilities in drawing observationally. The second half of the class you will dive into completing a personal final project which may incorporate drawing from imagination, photographic references, collage, and more. Models in this classes are nude.

Expanded Line Drawing

Develop observational abilities and technical skills that are the foundational elements of drawing. The goal is to give you the necessary tools to understand how you see and perceive visual information in the world, and how to translate these experiences onto a two-dimensional format. While upholding traditional drawing methods, this class also looks to drawing as an experimental process and as a gateway to explore broader thematic and conceptual frameworks. During this course, there will be several extended drawing projects that provide opportunities for you to further investigate your creative responses to material, scale, and subject matter.

Collage

Explore the broad spectrum of practices collage encompasses and discover their formal and conceptual possibilities—moving drawing beyond the page. Juxtaposing images, materials and concepts, you will practice combining different materials to create something entirely different from the sum of its parts. There will be an emphasis on the use of found and reused materials such as paint, wood, glass, and fabric. You will complete an array of individual and group assignments focused on both formal and thematic subjects, ending with a final personal project. 13


“At SFAI PreCollege, I've

had the opportunity to explore different techniques and further develop and define my own personal style as an artist. I've met so many amazing people here who have taught me so much about art and life, and I'm so grateful to have had this experience!.

—Gwendolyn Pohlmann, Newtown Square, PA

Film Experimental Cinema

Enter the world of cinema as an expressive medium—not merely an instrument of narrative and illusion. In this course, there will be very few explosions, love scenes, or breathtaking chase sequences— instead you will capture concept, emotion, and intention. Experience alternative, avant-garde, and experimental cinema through screenings, discussions, and hands-on workshops. Starting with the technical, including Super 8, 8mm, and 16mm film, we will then move to concept-driven projects utilizing video, editing, audio, and installation with your culminating project to be screened and/or installed at the final exhibition.

Video Art

Make video-based art as you learn about a wide range of methods and styles, such as; documentary, performance, and experimental video. In-class demonstrations will focus on shooting with specialized cameras, capturing sound on microphones, using green-screen technology, and editing using software such as Adobe Premiere. Lectures, discussions, and screenings of historical and contemporary video-artists will inspire and ground your practice. Students enrolled in this course are expected to work both independently and collaboratively to define their own projects. The class will conclude with a presentation of your video through a screening, installation, and/or performance.

Painting

Painting + Permutations

Emphasize originality and craftsmanship in your painting as you bring your ideas to light. Hands-on painting demonstrations focused on technique dovetail with critical discussions that cultivate a common art vocabulary. We will examine modern, postmodern, and contemporary art movements to contextualize studio work, pushing you to embrace experimentation and explore the conceptual possibilities of paint as you complete a series of personally-driven paintings.

Narrative + Identity in Painting

Explore ideas surrounding notions of identity, home and family using psychology and emotion as impetus to create and resolve a series of paintings around those themes. Students are encouraged to reference photography and memory, paying particular attention to space, objects and people that connect the artwork to the personal. Slide lectures and readings will provide contemporary and historical context for discussion of painting as a storytelling device. 15


Photography

Darkroom Photography

Photography Requirements

16

Advance technical skills in the darkroom while honing your artistic voice. Starting with camera operations and moving through blackand-white darkroom processes of printing and shooting, you will gain skill in dodging, burning, cropping, and adjusting contrast and exposure. Field trips, extensive darkroom practice, gallery visits, and discussions will support you technically and conceptually. By the end of the course, you will have completed an individualized project.

Students must provide their own 35mm or digital SLR camera with manual camera operations. Additional photography equipment is available on loan.


Contemporary Photographic Practices

Dive into the world of digital photography through hands-on practice in the digital lab, lighting studio, and in the field. Learn to compose images and produce digital prints while learning advanced Adobe Photoshop features like selections, layers, masks, and channels. Group discussions on contemporary photography offer insight— and room for debate—on photographers, their artistic practice, strategies, and concepts. By the end of the course, you will have produced a cohesive body of photographs and broadened your expertise in digital photography and printing.

The Constructed Photograph

We will examine what it means for the artist to work as director, whether it is staging people, objects, or materials in order to “construct” a photograph. Lectures on seminal photographers from the conceptual 1970s and into the contemporary realm will reveal the evolution of the field. This genre makes use of a vast range of techniques including lighting, staging, styling, directing, crafting, scripting, and more. Constructed images in this course can include many mediums and materials —from celluloid film, found or constructed objects, paintings, drawings, prints, to sculpture and installation and is well-suited for photographers who want to push their practice in new directions.

“Studying at SFAI PreCollege

made me feel motivated to push myself to create art beyond what I've ever tried to before. With the support of the teachers and community here, I was able to expand my abilities and open my mind to new techniques and other people's ideas that would push me to work harder.

—Alexandra Isabel Winton, Manila Philippines

Lighting + Portrait Photography Above: Lena Kalotihos, PreCollege 2019 Final Exhibition, Digital Color Prints. Below: Dana Morrison's Constructed Photograph class, students Alex Infield and Tay Freeman at work.

Discover creative techniques to change the mood of your photograph through the use of controlled lighting. Learn how to build lighting sets as used by commercial, fashion, and fine-art photographers. Examine the work of contemporary photographers and the use of light in their work and its relationship to portrait as subject. Technical demonstrations and hands-on collaborative projects will teach proper use of professional studio equipment and help achieve desired lighting.


Printmaking

Above: Jonathan Palmer's Screenprinting class, students in the Studio. Left: Screenprint by student Lulu Schneider.

Silkscreen Printmaking

Learn to combine various forms of imagery such as drawing and digital photography through layering, playing with ink transparency, and printing on a wide range of surfaces. You will learn how to prepare your screen to print, including coating with light-sensitive emulsion, exposing your screen, as well as how to register multi-layered images, and print on a variety of surfaces—from paper to plexiglass to fabric. Lectures, group discussion, and in-class demonstrations will give you a historical understanding of screenprinting as a printmaking art form as you work to complete a final personal project. 19


“Smaller is a comfort place, bigger is where you challenge yourself. —Cam Spellman, Kirkland, WA

Sculpture Sculpture as Installation

20

Blend construction methods, design, and functionality of contemporary sculptural installation as you explore processes, techniques, and concepts. Design and build structures using a variety of materials, from plaster casts to fabric. You will review site, place, juxtaposition of objects, meaning, and content to push your work to greater spatial heights. Class time may also include documentation of sculpture through video, photo, audio, and written formats as you consider moving your sculpture(s) into installation projects.

Ceramics + Moldmaking

This course will examine clay as a sculptural material with special focus on hand building techniques. Coil building, slab construction, and slip casting will act as the primary approaches to making. Surface articulation, including glaze strategies and the incorporation of supplementary materials will also be addressed. Project prompts will act as loose starting points to give students room to develop personal styles of making. The history of ceramic sculpture and contemporary ceramic practices will be introduced with a special attention to Bay Area ceramics. Students will complete the class with considerable knowledge of the ceramic process and fully realized projects. 21


Student Life San Francisco is thriving, and SFAI is your gateway to exploring it all. PreCollege organizes visits to museums such as SFMOMA, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Asian Art Museum, Berkeley Art Museum, de Young Museum, and Legion of Honor, as well as galleries, pop-up spaces, and site-specific happenings. Our ample green spaces, eclectic music venues, spirited technological innovations, and proximity to the Pacific Ocean are part of what makes the Bay Area such a vibrant and inclusive setting to practice any form of art.

“SFAI PreCollege has been one of the best

experiences of my life. I’ve learned new techniques for creating and more about the world around me. The friends, experiences, and knowledge I’ve gained here will stay with me long after I’ve left San Francisco.
