Paperback

Price: $29.95

Overview

This project’s socially based approach to art and design education hits a nerve with today’s generation of active makers. -Ellen Lupton, author and curator

Making and Being draws upon the lived experience of Susan Jahoda and Caroline Woolard, visual arts educators who have developed a framework for teaching art with the collective BFAMFAPhD that emphasizes contemplation, collaboration, and political economy. The authors share ideas and pedagogical strategies that they have adapted to spaces of learning which range widely, from self-organized workshops for professional artists to Foundations BFA and MFA thesis classes. This hands-on guide includes activities, worksheets, and assignments and is a critical resource for artists and art educators today. Making and Being is a book, a series of videos, a deck of cards, and an interactive website with freely downloadable content.

Susan Jahoda is an artist, educator and organizer whose work includes video, photography, text, performance, installation and research-based collaborative projects, and a core member of the New York-based collectives BFAMFAPhD and the Pedagogy Group. She is currently a Professor of Art at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and resides in New York City.

Caroline Woolard is an Assistant Professor of Sculpture at the Hartford Art School, CT. Woolard employs sculpture, installation and online networks to study the pleasures and pains of interdependence. She is the 2018-20 inaugural Walentas Fellow for Women Leaders in the Arts at Moore College of Art and Design.
