Integrating iPad Technology in the Classroom

The introduction of the iPad brought the power and functionality of a full-size computer system into a lightweight, user-intuitive, mobile tablet and educators have since rapidly embraced it to meet computing needs and fill specific niche roles. Discover how technology can increase engagement, allow access to vast content and provide the ability to create media to share stories with visuals and sound, and signal what lies ahead for students. Bring technology into integrated use throughout the curriculum by using tablet devices and their applications to explore the development of lessons applicable to a range of subject areas through cross-curricular sound and video projects. Consider how the iPad can be an integrated professional tool for classroom management and for creating and sharing content. Discuss the financial resources for bringing these technologies into schools.

Register now - course runs from February 27 - March 13, Sat + Sun, 9AM - 4PM || Instructor: Kenneth Kay

Read the reviews:

"Phantom Effect is ripe with beauty and terror—a thrill ride with the brakes gone out. You'll only open this book once."
—Thorne and Cross, authors of "The Ghosts of Ravencrest" and "The Cliffhouse Haunting"

"A philosophically rich fearfest that's recommended for readers who prefer their titillation to include some complexity ... a perverted parable that challenges traditional moral norms and reader expectations. A thriller designed to question as much as entertain."
—Publishers Weekly

"One of the most powerful and gripping horror novels I’ve read in years. Phantom Effect establishes Aronovitz as a prominent voice in contemporary weird fiction." —S. T. Joshi

Corzo Center: Art and Tech: Communicating Your Creative Vision with Technology

Art and Tech: Communicating Your Creative Vision with Technology

By Corzo Center at the University of the Arts
 

THURSDAY, MARCH 17 2016 7:00 PM — 8:30 PM
 

Rapid growth in the technology industry has drastically impacted nearly every aspect of our lives. For some artists, this is a good reason to refocus on traditional craftsmanship and techniques. For others, the myriad of new and affordable technology is an opportunity to play, experiment, and develop new forms for creative expression that were not possible before.
 

The Hacktory knows new technical solutions aren't always the best option, and they are excited to help artists explore what's possible with technology to expand their creative practices in ways that create new, inspiring art.
 

Join The Hacktory and tech and environmental artist Leslie Birch for a discussion on how integrating tech into your artwork can help you achieve new levels of creative expression. This discussion will be followed by a tour of The Hacktory’s new workshop, tools available (electronic sewing materials, 3D printers, electronics work bench, the kinect and interactive programs built for artists), and demos of interactive software and physical hardware-based projects.
 

Participants will receive access to one free class at The Hacktory.
 

Made possible through the generous support of The Knight Foundation with support of the Center for Emerging Visual Artists.

Corzo Center - The Fine Art of Letterpress

The Fine Art of Letterpress

By Corzo Center at the University of the Arts
 

THURSDAY, MAY 19 2016 | 7:00 PM — 8:30 PM
 

Discover how to integrate the fine art of letterpress into your practice. Letterpress has been in practice since the 15th century, transforming itself from simply a means of reproducing text into a tactile art form that packs a visual and textural punch in the digital age. Explore how letterpress can meet your artistic needs from custom made marketing to the art of the book.

Learn the basics of setting a line of type and print using a letterpress at The Soapbox. We'll look at multiple ways of printing on the letterpress - from setting wood and metal type to using polymer plates created from digital files to linocut to creating experimental prints using inked plexiglas and paper collages. Try your hand at our clamshell platen press as well as the easy-to-use Line-o-Scribe proof press.

Mary Tasillo is a paper, print, and book artist, community arts activist, and educator. Mary is co-founder of The Soapbox, where she wears many hats. Her teaching experience includes papermaking, letterpress, and WPA Poster workshops at Fleisher Art Memorial, Naropa University, and the University of the Arts, as well as teaching at The Soapbox. She also works as Outreach Coordinator for Hand Papermaking, Inc., and has organized conferences, panels, and events, as well as worked as a Gallery Director and Office Manager. She earned her MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking from The University of the Arts in 2006. She will be joined by other board and studio members of The Soapbox.

Empowering individuals through access to equipment and art-making space as well as workshops, The Soapbox remains driven by the beauty of letterpress printing and the power of community-based art making. With an active creative and volunteer community, and serving hundreds of individuals each year, The Soapbox preserves the craft of the handmade book while supporting the community in telling its stories in a compelling way - sharing, preserving and archiving stories that are outside the mainstream media and publishing worlds. This print shop and maker studio provides affordable access to education, equipment, events, and a library, inviting community members to come together to read rare self-published zines, letterpress and screenprint, bind books, assemble comics zines, and make paper.
