“Massive Drawing Class Overhaul: Adventures in Gamification and Experimentation”

Watch with train-wreck fascination as your presenter, in an effort to keep the changing generation of students engaged, performs mental and physical aerobics with her class structure. Marvel as she puts on an impressive protective shell to keep herself from transforming into a pile of goo. Look boldly into the sky at her contrail of hopes and dreams. What does it spell?! Find out by placing your warm body in the room in which she is making said presentation. (Ultimately during the time she is in the room.)

Sue Anne Rische, Professor of Art, Collin College

Sue Anne Rische,Sue Anne Rische received her BFA from Texas Tech University and her MFA from the University of Washington. She currently teaches art at Collin College in McKinney, Texas. After much research, Sue Anne Rische discovered that she could be filed under the title of “Multi-Media Artist”. That is, she has an idea for a piece of art, and then creates it in the material that best suits the idea. She is not married to any one material, but gravitates towards “stuff that you can see through” which includes but is not limited to mylar and vellum, plexiglass, perforated metal, lace and sheer fabric, and varieties of small aquatic life. She also draws, sculpts, and does some scary things with photoshop. Her work can be described as conceptual, sometimes realistic, and occasionally funny. Above all, one of the best compliments she has received regarding her work is, “I’ve never seen that before” as she considers herself to be very unique. Just ask her.

“Academic Art Galleries as a Teaching Resource”

Ms. Shipp will discuss Academic Galleries as a teaching/learning resource for colleges and universities, and how an on-campus art gallery can be a powerful resource, even for disciplines outside of Art. With examples of assignments that range from History to Math courses, the gallery can help create coursework to strengthen visual problem-solving abilities, improve vocabulary and language skills, expose students to other cultures, and to encourage creative solutions within traditional academic settings. Images and assignments used in the past may be included in the presentation, as well as a quick demonstration on how problem-solving and language skills can be improved with art or visual aids.
