This Spring semester, the Center for Applied Liberal Arts officially launched the Diploma in Global Art Business, a program which prepares students for careers in the arts by giving them specialized training in navigating the art market, understanding regulations and how art is valued, managing collections, and the intricacies of art transactions. For their final project, students presented on an art collection of their own design, from conception through its acquisition, taking into consideration preservation and other long-term issues. Pictured at left are students Liu Di and Lu Xie with instructors Martha Blackwelder, Sabine Wilson, and Patrick Regan.
In our non-credit student studio art program, students explored figure drawing, painting, photography, and using a variety of techniques and materials to create art. Pictured at left are students from Claire Rosenfeld’s Drawing and Painting with Mixed Media during a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
While students in Ben Copperwheat’s new course the Fashion Designer as an Artist looked at contemporary art and fashion collaborations, students in other art history courses explored Matisse, Picasso, Vienna at the turn of the century, and other significant artists and movements through lectures and visits to NYC landmarks such as the Museum of Modern Art, Neue Galerie, Cooper-Hewitt, and others.
This summer, take advantage of CALA’s numerous course offerings in the arts. Stay tuned for more information on the Diploma in Global Arts and new diplomas in Visual and Performing Arts Administration and Historic Preservation Studies to be launched in Fall 2017.
