While there is no substitute for in-person interactions that take place in physical studios and classrooms, the Art and Art Education faculty are excited to work with our students primarily online this semester. We are all educators, dedicated to offering meaningful learning opportunities. We love to design curriculum, and are mindful that our teaching approaches must respond to specific circumstances and student needs. This summer, we focused on learning as much as possible about online teaching, and on designing relevant, engaging courses for you. We can’t wait to see you in our virtual studios and classrooms!
To get ready for online learning this semester, please visit “Learning Online at TC.” Here you will find tips, tutorials, and resources that will help prepare you for a smooth and productive online learning experience.
In Spring 2021, most Art and Art Education courses will be entirely online. However, a select few--not all--of our studio courses will be hybrid: parts of these courses will be taught in-person in TC’s studios, and other parts online. Studios to be taught in hybrid form are those that rely on materials and equipment that students cannot access in their homes, specifically:
The rest of our studios will be taught online. Customary studio fees will be waived or reduced significantly for online studios (when fees are reduced, these will be used for guest speakers). Instead of paying studio fees, students will be required to source and purchase their own supplies. Specific supply lists will be provided by studio instructors.
You can see whether a course is online or hybrid in TC’s course schedule.
Spring 2021 hybrid studio art courses will combine in-person and online teaching, giving TC students a chance to work in amazing studio environments that have been carefully prepared for safe learning, experimenting and making. Student artists of all levels are welcome in our Spring 2021 hybrid studio art courses. In addition to adhering to the college-wide COVID-19 campus safety and access protocols, each hybrid art studio has been individually assessed and prepared for safe learning and teaching by the Art and Art Education Program under the direction of TC’s Environmental Health & Safety team. If you have any questions about our hybrid studio art courses, please contact the Art and Art Education office or the individual instructor of the hybrid art studio course that you are interested in.
