mara gibson, one of the creators of ArtSounds, and a teacher over at the umkc conservatory of music, is looking for kcai students to participate in the above titled class. it sounds like a great experience, and will culminate in an artsounds performace in april. there is no need for a musical background. you need to enroll very very soon (now-ish). contact mara directly at gibsonmb [at] umkc.edu
here's the course description:
The goal of the class will be form groups of artists who work in
various media. Each group will work together to create a large-scale
Traditionally, western music is a collaborative art that has divided
the act of performance from the action of creativity and invention.
Unsurprisingly, when you multiply the factors to include new genres in
collaboration, roles shift and expand often bleeding into
unconventional crossovers. The complexity and definition of these
factors becomes all the more important given these new developments.
This class will investigate the history of collaboration since the
turn of the century culminating with communicative and informed class
collaborations. Thinking outside the box is required.

cody langford, kcai GD alum and wearer of short, clown-like neckties, is teaching a lettepress class. should be quite cool, as he will actually have a nice range of workable type and equipment. here's the info:
February 21 & 28 8AM - 1PM
$165 for KCCIPA members ($180 for Non-members)
This workshop will explore the lure of letterpress printing from its history to the planning and production of hands-on projects. We'll cover all the basics of the letterpress process--type setting, lock-up, platen press make-ready, press operation, clean up, hand mixing ink, the use of linoleum blocks and photopolymer plates. You will print a small run (25 impressions) of your own typography as well as a copy to exchange with each of the other class participants.
Time outside of class may be needed by students wanting to print linoleum or photopolymer. Introduction to these 2 mediums will be discussed but design and/or creating the lino or photopolymer plate is up to each participant. Additional cost for materials is the sole responsibility of the student.
Bring a lunch or something to snack on in case you get hungry.
CONTACT cody langford for more information. 816.392.0079
