Fall 2004 Issue: Teaching the Visual Arts
What is most deeply experienced by the whole person can be most personal to the individual, as well as something quite rewarding to the whole college community.
—Ansei Uchima, Visual Arts Faculty Member, 1967-1988
There is an art to teaching art—one that Sarah Lawrence has been refining for more than 75 years. It’s still a work-in-progress, and each successive artist brings subtle shifts in style, but its focus couldn’t be more defined: Open your mind, cross your disciplines and present angles on the world that are yours alone. Now the visual arts and visual cultures classes have migrated—from scattered locations all over campus—to a new home in the Monika A. and Charles A. Heimbold, Jr. Visual Arts Center, and a new era begins. In this issue, Sarah Lawrence takes a look at how, when art is taught, learned and made, anything is possible.
