In this course students will be introduced to drawing from direct observation of a still life using only a pencil and eraser. The eraser is as important a tool as the pencil in keeping the drawing open to change. Through gesture, and weight of line, students learn how to master the technical skills to accurately describe simple and complex forms in an organized composition. We will look to artists such as Cezanne, Giacometti and Morandi to learn how they mastered the art of drawing.

Build and take home a noisy sound machine while learning a wide range of soldering skills. We've designed a circuit which includes through-hole, surface mount, and wire lug techniques. We'll also demonstrate repair and salvage techniques.
No previous experience required. All materials and tools provided.

Building off of concepts introduced in our Basic Synthesis classes, Intermediate Synthesis is a deep-dive into creative patching techniques for modular synthesizers. We’ll use VCV Rack (a free software modular synthesizer) as well as hardware, to transform a collection of ‘basic’ utilities into a playground of exciting sounds and musical gestures.
This class is perfect for those with some experience working with synthesizers (either hardware or software). Prior experience with modular synths is not required — we’ll use a very simple toolkit (achieving complexity through mixing and patching), and we will cover the fundamentals of each module as we go.

In this illustrated talk, plant historian Deirdre Larkin will conjure the plants of power used in seasonal folk magic and witchcraft, as agents of blessing and protection, and as instruments of transformation, seduction, and destruction.
