Graduate Studio Intensive in Ireland at Burren College of Art
Description of Proposed Course
This course is a three week faculty-led study trip to Burren College of Art for Columbia College graduate students. Columbia College graduate students take this class for credit (Advanced Elective Credit) and register through Columbia College. BCA’s semester starts at the same time as Columbia, so students from both schools would get the chance to be a part of the same seminar/studio course.
Week 1 would include a tour of the Burren, Connemara, and a trip to Galway in conjunction with orientation for incoming students. Weeks two and three would include opportunities for getting both groups of grads working together. A series of Research Methods seminars (examining appropriation, socially engaged practice, collaboration etc.) would be a part of this course. Due to the unpredictable weather at this time of year, the focus for the group would be studio based. Students would meet regularly with BCA and Columbia faculty for one-on-one meetings. The trip would end with both BCA and Columbia students travelling to Dublin on Thursday, Jan 22 for a three day field trip. The Columbia College Chicago group would fly out of Dublin.
