Amy M. Ho

8 Sessions >> Tuesdays, September 27–November 15
7:30–10:30pm, Studio 10, $350

This class will focus on site-specific artwork. Students will be introduced to a variety of artists that address the surrounding environment in the design and creation of their artwork.  We will explore the work of artists experimenting in a wide range of mediums and discuss the documentation of these works.  Weekly readings combined with brief lectures will serve as the basis for class discussion.  In addition to weekly assignments, students will be asked to develop one final site-specific installation to be finished at the end of the semester. Class time will be split between lecture, discussion, critique and studio time. The class will include two off-campus field trips. 

Sample class assignments: 1) Create a work that reacts to the architecture of the classroom, 2) Create a work that reflects the usage of a specific space, and 3) Create a site specific work and bring in documentation of the work.

FAQs

What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?
Each course requires specific materials that we ask you bring to your first class session so you can get started making right away. Materials lists are available approximately two weeks prior to the course start date. Visit the SFAI website here, click on your course title, and then click on the blue "Materials List" link underneath the course dates. If you have any questions regarding materials, please contact Public Education Staff.

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.

SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.

SFAI is easily accessible via public transportation, with Muni bus lines #30 Stockton, and #47 Van Ness located within a few blocks of campus.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
SFAI Public Education Staff are always happy to answer any questions you may have about the Public Education program, or our courses. We are in the office Monday-Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. Call us at: 415.749.4554 or e-mail: publiceducation@sfai.edu
