Photography & Media

ART 317K
Beginning Photography

In this course you will learn the fundamentals of medium format black & white photography, how to use a manual medium format camera, expose black & white film, and how to digitally edit, sequence, and critique your own and your fellow classmates' work.

In the interest of public health, this course will primarily take place online. A camera kit (Medium format camera, light meter, tripod) will be available for checkout from UT. You must be in Austin to use this opportunity. Alternatively, if you are not on or near campus, you must provide your own 35mm film camera such as Pentax K-1000, Canon AE-1, or Nikon F-6, with a 50mm lens otherwise prime (non-zoom) lens. You will be required to purchase film and the Adobe Suite (discounted for students). You will drop off, or ship film to UT where Lab Monitor Amber Johnson will oversee the development and scanning of film.

You will study aspects of photographic history and begin to define your individual voice as an artist. Assignments will be given in order to challenge how you think about and make pictures both technically and conceptually. Class time will be dedicated to slide lectures and discussions, group critiques, visiting artist talks, demos, peer editing, and supervised work time.

Intermediate Photography

From a technical point of view, the core structure of the semester is geared towards gaining knowledge of the tools of digital photography and applying this information towards the creation of compelling images. In the interest of public health, this course will be held online although there will also be optional in person, outdoor meetings to review camera function. Students will be able to check out cameras from our lab for the semester and will not have to share with other students. We will work with two different cameras, a 4x5 large format film camera and a Digital SLR. We will switch cameras midway through the semester. (If you are unable to come to Austin to check out equipment, you be will required to find a suitable DSLR to use during the course. You will not be required to track down a 4x5 film camera.)

When working with the film camera, you will drop off or mail your film to Holland Photo in Austin for processing. Once developed, the film will be sent to the UT Photography Lab, where Lab Monitor Amber Johnson will oversee the scanning of the film. The digital scans and film will then be sent to the student. We will use these scan files while learning the properties of digital image files and ways in which to edit them in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Bridge, and Adobe Lightroom. (When working with DSLRs, you will simply upload the files to your computer.)

Print

ART 310P
Introduction to Print


This course will introduce students to a wide range of printmaking processes. Students will be presented with online demonstrations, hands-on instruction, and digital links and research resources. Projects using the traditional media of silkscreen, relief, intaglio and lithography will be supplemented with various “at home” media utilizing mono-types, collagraphs, pochoir, dry-points, collage and frottage to create prints without elaborate or expensive equipment. Completion of this intensive course will allow students to choose which intermediate printmaking courses they wish to pursue further. To ensure social distancing and safety standards, students will participate in both online and limited occupancy classroom work.

This is a Blended/hybrid course. Some activities will be designed that they may be accomplished from home where other activities must be accomplished using the universities facilities.

ART 325J
Intermediate Print: Relief

Relief printing is one of the earliest printmaking techniques and as a result has a rich history of “low-tech” methods, which allow for printing without a press and outside of a traditional print shop setting. Students will learn how to set up an at home print studio and explore a range of relief processes including a combination of the following: lino cuts and lino reduction cuts, woodblock prints, monotypes and monoprints, and/or supplemental techniques such as hand coloring, collage/collagraph, pochoir, and/or frottage. Working in series, variable editions, publications, and/or more experimental methods drawing from the history of performance art’s relationship to relief printing may also be introduced. Instead of using a press, students will learn how to hand print their matrices using a baren. Students will be encouraged to experiment and incorporate other mediums as they create and develop their work. Readings/videos, short writing responses, and critiques will be required.

This course will be taught entirely online with the possibility of access to print facilities outside of class hours. This optional access to labs will allow students to work on projects in the print labs if they wish to. Students will be required to follow all building use guidelines and adhere to lab occupancy restrictions.

Sculpture & Extended Media

ART 313K
Beginning Sculpture

In this course students will receive an in-depth introduction into the field of sculpture and will explore many different methods of making and relating to objects.

Intermediate Sculpture

In this course students will develop their own focused studio practice as well as the specific language to discuss their work and the work of their peers. Throughout the course of the semester we will investigate sensitivity— as it relates to object making and the field of sculpture as well as the concept of sensitivity in a larger context. We will talk about environmental sensitivity (space/context), emotional sensitivity (feeling/metaphor), tactile sensitivity (touch/physicality) and material sensitivity (material meaning). These topics are designed to frame readings, discussions and lectures but will not place technical restrictions on students' individual projects. Students should however always be thinking about if or how any or all of these sensitivities apply to their own practices.

ART 320F
Digital Fabrication I

Digital Fabrication introduces students to computer modeling, 3D data acquisition, and various forms of digital fabrication. Specifically, students will use Rhinoceros 3D to digitally model virtual forms, photogrammetry will be used to digitally capture 3D data, and the department’s laser cutters, 3-axis CNC router, 4-axis CNC milling machine, 3D printers, UV printer, and vinyl cutter will be used to physically realize student designs. Personal research, lectures, media, readings and discussions will supplement software and hardware demonstrations during the course.

In practice, most of this course will take place online. Many of the assignments will be rendered as images rather than physical objects, and any projects that are physically realized will likely use the service Fab Lab To-Go, which performs certain tasks for students including cutting, printing, and scan processing. As students become cleared to use the equipment, students may be given access to the lab to independently work on their projects. Students who wish to complete the course without utilizing the lab will be able to complete equivalent activities remotely without academic penalty.
