DATES: July 20 – 24, 2015
SKILL LEVEL: Open to all
CONCEPT: Creativity isn’t learned, it’s practiced, and ideas are merely the beginning of a creative process. Motivated by an intense, playful search for the inspiration to exceed one’s imagination, this course pursues the unexpected, the unrealistic and the impractical. Focused on discovery through the rendering of ideas, this workshop is a series of exercises/conversations investigating new ways of looking at, thinking about and making creative decisions.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students use cardboard, words, glue, string, pigment, line, volume, poetics.
ACTIVITIES: We read, talk, think, make, look, talk and remake.
FACULTY: Karl Burkheimer is Professor and the Chair of the Master of Fine Arts in Craft program at the Oregon College of Art and Craft. He received his M.F.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University. His work has been exhibited nationally, and he has received several awards, including a 2012 Individual Artist Fellowship from the Oregon Arts Commission and a 2013 U.S.-Japan Creative Artist Fellowship.
