Description

THE MIND AND BODY IN SPACE
Amy M. Ho
6 sessions >> Tuesdays, February 7-March 14

6:30-9:30 pm, Studio 9, $275
No prerequisite.

This course will focus on art that examines our physical and mental relationships to architecture and the environment. Students will be introduced to the light and space movement, land art, and contemporary artists who deal directly with architecture, space and experience. Weekly readings combined with brief lectures will serve as the basis for class discussion and provide inspiration for your personal projects. Readings will include writings from the fields of art, architecture, and philosophy and will cover both the impact of experiential art in the art community as well as the influences that lie behind the work. The course will also include two off-campus field trips.

FAQs

What is the refund policy?
You can view the SFAI Public Education refund policy on the SFAI website here.

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.

I have a question that isn't on this list. Who can I contact?
