Call for Quilters! Intergenerational Quilting Project @ CTAC-Petoskey
Nov 27 2017 – Feb 7 2018 all-day

The goal of the project is to provide an intergenerational learning opportunity through the arts, while teaching area children about the Civil War.

The Learning Studio will be working with Public Schools of Petoskey Enrichment Coordinator, Kathy Slack, and her group of 18, fourth-grade language arts students.  These boys and girls were selected for the enrichment program based on their exceptional test scores. 

This year, the project will use the text, Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Sampler. The text provides patterns for 50 quilting blocks, each with a lesson on its historical background and significance.  Crooked Tree Arts Center will provide fabric, pattern and lesson plan.  

Each volunteer/mentor will work with a student to create a quilt block over the course of three set dates during the winter months at Crooked Tree Arts Center.   It is The Learning Studio’s hope, that the student and mentor will establish a relationship through sewing activities and letter writing that will not only be beneficial to the student, but to the mentor.  

Interested quilters should contact Megan DeWindt or call 231-347-1236. 

Required Dates:

Wednesday, February 7 from 10 AM – 12:30 PM at Crooked Tree Arts Center

Coffee @ Ten: Digital Culture & Technologies with Taekyeom Lee @ Upper Level Carnegie Building, CTAC-Petoskey
Jan 30 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

We are excited to welcome Hand In Hand artist,  Taekyeom Lee, for our January edition of Coffee @ Ten.  
 
About Taekyeom Lee

Taekyeom is an interdisciplinary artist, but he prefers to introduce himself as a designer using artists’ materials and artistic sensibilities. He received an MFA in Graphic Design from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and currently holds a position as an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. His research explores unconventional methods of creating three-dimensional type with materials and techniques not traditionally related to type design — such as ceramics and desktop 3D printing. This research reflects on the process of digital fabrication and the unconventional typographic practices in the post-digital age. His typographic experimentation and explorations include creating three-dimensional, tangible type with his own custom-built 3D printer. His research has drawn national and international interest. His work in graphic design also explores a diverse area of interests and experience like artists’ books, ceramics, web design, lettering, digital fabrication, and art/design pedagogy.

 

Digital culture and technologies currently yield a strong influence over many areas of artistic practices, typography included. Through technological convergence, new manufacturing processes using computer numerical control, such as 3D printing, CNC milling, and laser cutting have broadened creative possibilities for artists and designers. 3D printing has become more refined, common, and accessible, as well as cheaper – and finally, it has come to our desktop space. These new technologies have provided new tools for pushing boundaries of the medium both in terms of concept and materiality. In the response to the movement, Taekyeom built his own tools, including a custom desktop 3D printer and paste extruders, to produce 3D ceramic type made out of 3D Bézier curves drawn in CAD software. He has created 3D type with plastic, clay, precious metal clay, and new techniques, to inspire and creatively empower art and design professionals.
