T/AP is back from Spring Break! This week we experimented in printmaking with artist Joshua Goode. Beginning the day with a short presentation about relief prints, Joshua explained how prints are not like paintings or sculptures—the printing process results in multiples, and they are rather cheap to produce. Joshua reviewed printmaking from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance to Modernism, providing examples by artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Käthe Kollwitz, Pablo Picasso, M.C. Escher, and Al Held, among many others.
Our field trip to various art-related venues in Dallas this past Saturday proved to be a whirlwind adventure! We were welcomed into several different types of art spaces and learned a great deal about each of them in the process. A private collection, galleries, studios, and an art foundation were our visits for the day.
Joshua Goode has joined T/AP as our final artist and mentor of the 2012–2013 class year, and we are very excited to have him with us. Working in various media, he is an artist interested in not only creating an art object, but also harnessing its setting as an integral part of the work. As he discussed his own art practice, we learned that much of his inspiration is autobiographical, often dealing with his family and personal history.
