Steve Brodner is an illustrator, caricaturist and veteran Continuing Education faculty with over three decades working as a professional satirist. Having honed his craft since the Nixon era, he is currently experiencing an unprecedented demand for his virtuosic mega-compositions and punchy moment-to-moment political commentary on the Trump administration. In addition to contributing to almost every major North American print publication, including The Nation, The Washington Post, The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times, Brodner maintains a remarkably constant social media feed, and a full schedule of teaching at SVA. He began with SVA Continuing Education in 1993, and currently teaches Illustration: Rules of the Road, a primer on the process and best practices of illustration, and Pow!

greetings and a warm welcome to our very first issue of ContinuEd. ContinuEd started out as a conversation. Several years ago, School of Visual Arts President David Rhodes and I began the discussion when it was becoming clear that our continuing education program needed to implement new systems to manage our ever-changing curricula. This was also a good time to discuss the purpose of the printed course bulletin and the efficacy of our marketing efforts. Fast forward to today: With the redesign of the Division of Continuing Education’s website, our new content management system and online editorial strategy enable us to grow the program organically, without the deadlines associated with printing the course bulletin. With these new shifts, we decided to eliminate the printing of the course bulletin and instead launch a newsletter about arts-related content and our community. With this reimagined form of communication, we strive to keep you engaged, share our best ideas and practices, introduce faculty, showcase student artwork, highlight our facilities, and announce new course offerings. In this first issue of ContinuEd, we take a look at the Division of Continuing Education’s interdisciplinary approach to sustainable environmental, social, political and ethical issues and practices. The Division of Continuing Education staff will also introduce the various elements of our programming, including special programs, customized training and core courses. Toward the back of each newsletter, we’ll post a selection of our favorite spots around town that foster community and enable students and faculty to continue the conversation outside of the classroom. I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of the people who have been involved in getting this exciting project off the ground. I want to thank President David Rhodes for his continued support, and to the Visual Arts Press’ creative director, Gail Anderson, and her team for their invaluable talent. I have been tremendously fortunate to be able to work alongside them throughout this process, and thank them for making this journey so enjoyable and enriching. And thanks to you, our first readers, for being a part of this vital and ever-growing community. —Joseph Cipri, on behalf of the Division of Continuing Education

Susana’s project, Famiglia, documents the multi-generational experience of Italian-Americans.

CE Student Susana Rico Shows Her Work in the Student Gallery

Susana Rico recently was the subject of a show in the Continuing Education student gallery. She came to SVA to expand her expertise in photography, a passion she picked up travelling: “It was on a trip to Bali, Indonesia in 2011 when I first fell in love with the medium. I found that I was able to capture the beauty of the city through my images. It was so unexpected and inspiring. From then on, I decided that I would take my camera with me everywhere.” After that experience, she quickly found her specific focus. “Being exposed to different languages and cultures since childhood has made me extremely aware of my surroundings, so I quickly developed a particular taste for street photography and documentary.” Susana seeks out unique characters in her photographs; everything from musical performers to drag queens, families and passing strangers. For the student gallery she chose work she made in the Documentary Photography course she took by Richard Schulman. “I really enjoyed my first photodocumentary series, entitled La Famiglia. The project documented Italian-American heritage and what was passed on to new generations. I had just moved to the United States, and had been missing my family.

his spring, the Division of Continuing Education welcomed its first students to our program in collaboration with the Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI). As the nation’s oldest and largest organization supporting LGBTQ youth, HMI has been serving this community and their families for over 37 years. Offering a broad range of services and support to its members, its programs include Health and Wellness, Counseling, Services for Homeless Youth, Academic Enrichment and Job Readiness, and Arts and Culture. SVA faculty member and HMI art instructor Grant Shaffer helped facilitate the collaboration, in which two students each semester are nominated by their HMI art instructors to take a course tuition-free at SVA. Shaffer teaches Exploring Career Opportunities for Illustrators: A Drawing Workshop at SVA, where he connects students with professionals and further develops their portfolios through weekly projects. At HMI, he is one of several dedicated art instructors, working individually with the students at the Open Arts Studio. We visited Shaffer and his fellow instructors Leesa Tabrizi and Diego Lopez at HMI. The Open Arts Studio is filled with young people busily working on various projects: Tabrizi shows a student how to wire-wrap a stone

By spending time with these people, I got to know them, and by the time I was done, they had become like a second family to me.” Susana says her work is both a depiction of her subjects and also a reflection of her and her story, and La Famiglia was an especially relevant example of that. “By working on this series about family, I was able to expand my own.” [William Patterson]

As we walk down a hallway lined with photos of students with their artwork, Shaffer explains, “For the youths in our program, being able to take a class at SVA means the world to them. You can see something ignite inside them, like a door to great possibilities has opened. It’s an amazing moment when someone can envision a brighter future for themselves.” SVA is looking forward to having two new students participate this fall. [Akiko Takamori]

As an artist and professor, Brodner’s method is one of courage and clarity. “Write drunk; edit sober,” he often states, quoting Hemingway. For Brodner, a successful illustration depicts “one fine idea” and as he’s discovered through years of experience, “rarely is the first one the best.” His pedagogical refrain is, “Work it out in the sketching!” He will modestly tell you this is all he has to offer, but what Brodner really teaches is disciplined risk-taking: he is a professor of courage. We had the pleasure of sitting down for an interview with Brodner after his Wednesday evening class. We asked him his thoughts on The Emperor’s New Clothes, changing times and making work that gets under people’s skin.

“Courage is a big part of being creative. The world does not want you to be creative. It much prefers that you consume things. It doesn’t make any money off of you if you write a poem or paint a picture.” STEVE BRODNER faculty

You began your career in 1972 during the Nixon era. Can you compare that experience to today, under Trump? The days of Watergate were completely different, of course. Print was king and what was printed in The New York Times and The Washington Post had much more of an impact than it has today. If a news organization was sleazy or trafficked in incorrect information, it would quickly be marginalized. Today, we have sites that can pander to numbers of consumers of information that will not be held to any journalist standard at all! The Internet, we see, is a perfect medium for molding “information for sale.” And if you are Steve Brodner, Fight Club: Battle Lines of the White House Civil War, for the Los Angeles Times, April 9, 2017.


in the business of selling a click product driven by emotion, the truth doesn’t have to enter into the equation at all. So Donald Trump, who lies much more than Nixon did, can sell a long list of lies and hardly have to face up to any condemnation by the establishment media. I suspect that the forces of journalism and civil society will yet figure out how to organize against these trends. These are scary times. And very challenging ones. The fake news issue is absolutely terrifying. This brings to mind an assignment you gave in your course Illustration: Rules of the Road, based on The Emperor’s New Clothes. Do you see the honesty of political satire functioning as the child in the tale who reveals that the Emperor is naked? And do you ever feel uneasy about what you reveal? That’s a pretty interesting metaphor, the little naive truth-teller. I think we all would like to be that brave little person. The difference between advertising and editorial, of course, is that editorial at least gives you the chance to tell the truth. I am invested in editorial work and have never really left the world of cultural and political

commentary. I don’t feel uneasy about doing the strongest possible work. We have all been threatened, or on the receiving end of an angry reaction. I consider that to be a mark of distinction. I will say to people who complain about a piece that is particularly strong, “I’m glad I got under your skin.” How many hours a day do you spend reading the news? How many hours processing and sketching? On days when I am not teaching I am consuming great amounts of news and sketching at the same time. An hour or so per day with newspapers and websites in the morning. Then through the day I hear broadcasts and have periodicals and books read to me by an app that I have. I do get to sleep from time to time!

Do you have any words of advice for cultivating this type of artistic courage? Courage is a big part of being creative. The world does not want you to be creative. It much prefers that you consume things. It doesn’t make any money off of you if you write a poem or paint a picture. Consuming only leaves one wanting to consume more. I have found that there is nothing as satisfying as being creative. You are in touch with deep resources and with yourself. This leads to greater self-knowledge. And a hard-to-define feeling of well-being. It is a brave and lonely life that artists lead. One never knows if one’s work will be accepted. One never knows if one will feel successful in the work. My courses are designed to get you over that first difficult moment. We read an assignment together

Steve Brodner, Obama at the Breach: The Legacy of Obama, for The Nation, February 2017.

and then talk about it. And then we sketch, expecting ideas of varying levels of interest. But always keep the knowledge that as long as you are sketching, you are going to be generating elements that you can use. And you will ultimately, always, be successful. Even if you never do the crazy freelance thing, the courage of creating art is something that we can all learn. In many ways, it brings riches to your life.  E

Teaching Artists to Explore Multimedia by Georgette Maniatis

nspired by a vast range of materials, current politics and personal anecdotes, the students in Exploring Multimedia push the boundaries of the here and now. Each week, instructor Shirley Irons shares an assignment with her students. A self-portrait piece could begin by “making a list of a hundred things about yourself, things you like, hate, think about, know about yourself—do you think truth is possible?” Such assignments conjure inspiration with thought-provoking questions that range from the philosophical to the mundane. Students may choose the assignment as a catalyst for their own artwork or create something entirely unprompted. The student then creates a piece within the classroom using materials gathered from the world at large, and each unique outcome is then critiqued as a group. Students from various artistic backgrounds and of all levels of experience are encouraged to push the boundaries of their practice, and to experiment with mediums they are unfamiliar with. No material is off limits: the ephemerality of the everyday newspaper metamorphoses into a piece Gabriella Mazza’s collage composed of various papers and textures.


of sculpture, purple painted tissues scattered on the classroom floor become an installation, a potato covered in gold leaf qualifies as otherworldly. Current student Marisol Tirelli says, “Experimentation is essential for all artists, particularly using multiple mediums, by which the potential for new art forms can be discovered. This class facilitates the development of one’s own creative process in a low-pressure, supportive and open-minded environment.” Slide presentations on art history are given to expand the students’ critical vocabulary and ignite conversation. Collage, assemblage and bricolage are discussed in-depth for their non-hierarchical versatility and endless possibility. The course also looks intently at the artwork of a large number of artists, a few being Robert Rauschenberg, Eva Hesse, Lucas Samaras and Sarah Sze. With each semester, Irons feels strongly about doing away with the preconceptions of how art is defined, creating a space for freedom of expression that reflects Joseph Beuys’ celebrated declaration: “Everybody is an artist.”  E READY TO CHECK OUT OUR COURSES?

SUSTAINABILITY RESEARCH In today’s rapidly shifting global landscape, critical artistic practices play a pivotal role in the construction of sustainable societies. Some of our newest offerings that address social, political and ecological sustainability include:

City as Site: Performance and Social Interventions A nomadic summer residency that explores the diverse communities that define New York City with the aim of creating context-specific public performative works.

Design Writing and Research Summer Intensive Aimed at those who would like to refine their skills as thinkers, researchers and storytellers, participants examine the profession and its impact through projects, articles and blog posts.

Fine Arts: Residency in Contemporary Practices This intensive studio residency has been designed for artists working in cross-platform, non-disciplinary practices that aim for the intersection of art and ideas.

From the Laboratory to the Studio: Interdisciplinary Practices in Bio Art Of particular importance in bio art is to summon awareness of the ways in which advancing biotechnologies alter social, ethical and cultural values in society.

Impact! Design for Social Change One-week modules focus on collaborations at the grassroots level with local community groups, ecosystem mapping and prototyping for social design.


ur Fertile Ground Series highlights alumni, faculty and friends of the Summer Residency Program on their home turf, a fertile ground for creativity and community. Following is an excerpt of an interview with faculty member Caroline Woolard on the theme of sustainability and her practice as an artist, scholar and culture producer.

Your work has roots in activism and collaboration. What is your relationship to “sustainability”? For me, sustainability is the idea that there is no “trash” because waste material becomes source material for new work. This comes from conceptions of the “commons,” which I define as shared resources that are managed by and for the people who use those resources. Because I aim to communicate across social spheres, I make multiyear, research-based, site-specific projects that circulate in contemporary art institutions as well as in urban

development, critical design and social entrepreneurship settings. I consider myself to be a cultural producer whose interdisciplinary work facilitates social imagination at the intersection of art, urbanism and political economy. The objects I make cannot be disentangled from their economic and social lives. How does this manifest in your teaching? In the classroom, arts educators confront the socially idealized occupation of the cultural producer and the frequent disavowal of a relationship between

cultural production and the contemporary political economy. It is my aim to articulate existing economies of cultural production as well as plausible futures of ecological sustainability and social cooperation in art. You play many roles at SVA, including as faculty in the MFA Fine Arts Department, Division of Continuing Education and the Summer Residency Program. You’ve also been an artist-in-residence in SVA’s Visible Futures Lab. How have these experiences shaped your practice? I teach because I get to remain in constant dialog with ideas. Teaching requires me to listen deeply enough to change my mind. Being on faculty means that I get to participate in a community of continuous debate and dialog about art. I believe that art is a mode of inquiry, and that students should learn to identify the communities of discourse that are relevant to their work. I consider myself to have succeeded pedagogically when the students who take my courses sense the power of their own volition and become responsible to it, finding partners in other disciplines and recognizing themselves as artistic researchers who contribute critical reflections to an expanding ecology of culture.

MFA Design for Social Innovation

Social practice as a field of inquiry has become an increasingly vital site in which artists, designers and creative thinkers have begun to work. The MFA Design for Social Innovation Department is a leading incubator in the expanding field of social practice as it pertains to the intersection of design and social change. The students who enter the program come from a diverse variety of professional and geographic backgrounds; entrepreneurs, economists and designers work together to conceptualize, implement and execute projects that address some of society’s most pressing concerns on a local, national and global scale. Now in its sixth year, DSI department chair Cheryl Heller launched the program after

teaching a course called Design for Good. According to Heller, “social innovation design is the creation and propagation of healthy, mutually beneficial relationships between humans, technology and the earth.” During their study, students are encouraged to develop hands-on approaches to creative problem solving in the realms of systems design, critical thinking, strategy, game mechanics, social movement design and collective leadership. Among its many contributions, the department maintains a commitment to sustainability. For his thesis project, DSI alumnus Michael Raineri developed a method of converting used coffee grounds sourced from coffee shops throughout New York City. Raineri’s “The Community Grounds Project” is exemplary of the

ways in which DSI students think about how to effect change at a grassroots level. Heller noted that “the key for effective social change is a systemic approach.” DSI fosters an environment in which students can develop projects that are at once actionable and equitable.  [Eric Sutphin]
