We are a small liberal arts college. We have an art minor but not an art major. This course, Women in the History of Art, may be the only art course a student will take in four years. I will send you the syllabus but you may want to know more than dates of classes and readings. We are using the Whitney Chadwick textbook, 5th Edition, 2012. Prior to our first meeting students were assigned to read the Nochlin essay in its original, and respond to the conditions in society for women and woman artists, and how they think there are different or the same conditions today. Our first formal meeting was in our library with librarian Nicole Gitau who will accompany me with the class to visit you on the 20th. On that first day in the Library, Nicole introduced them to art databases. I distributed a book to each student on a woman artist from our collection. That artist is the student’s main research assignment. Students have just had another research session this week to find new approaches to research and a session with our faculty Technology educator on what NOT to do in their PowerPoint presentations, They were asked to order a second book on their artist from another library. At the end of the semester they will each make a presentation to include PowerPoints with uploaded video clips and illustrations by the artist they have been studying. Each student is going to be responsible for pages in a group Zine about their artist.
It will be so good for them see a variety of ways to write and publish zines with you. Copies of the zines will be exhibited in the student art show in May. Other field trips: We visited the Metropolitan Museum and have two visits scheduled to The Brooklyn Museum to see The Dinner Party and the Sackler Center of Feminist Art. To encourage students to read the Chadwick textbook, students have an assignment weekly to chart some of the artists in each chapter against social and cultural information in the text book, and other sources.
