Tyler School of Art Summer Painting Intensive 6 Week Residency

Interested in honing your paintings skills over the summer?  The Tyler School of Art Summer Painting Intensive (SPI) is a six-week (June 14–July 23) immersion program for artists interested in developing their work in a challenging and supportive environment.

The SPI is a non-credit, post-baccalaureate-style residency program suitable for:
BA and BFA seniors and recent graduates aiming to hone their artistic and intellectual skills, students building a portfolio for application to graduate school, as well as
professional artists seeking to strengthen their abilities and expand their outlook.

Tyler’s SPI seeks to give participants a foundation in painting knowledge and craft while providing students with the tools to think critically about their own practices and art in general. Week by week, group critiques, individual studio visits and critical studies seminars form the primary support to individual studio practices. Students will discuss their work in group settings and in one-on-one conversations with leading members of the contemporary art world. The session will culminate in a group show of SPI student work in the Tyler Gallery.
The 2010 program is led by an artist-director Wallace Whitney, and the SPI faculty consists of Tyler’s full-time faculty as well as visiting artists and critics, curators, and art historians: Mark Shetabi, Susan Moore, Odili Odita, Katherine Carl, Philip Glahn, as well as weekly visiting artists.

Tyler School of Art is home to one of the preeminent painting programs in the country. Graduates of the BFA and MFA programs regularly go on to illustrious careers on the international stage. In Spring 2009, Tyler School of Art moved from its suburban campus in Elkins Park, PA, to a stunning new 160,000-square-foot building designed by Carlos Jimenez, situated in the heart of Temple University’s historic campus.

MFA Thesis Exhibition: Samantha Hookway

Fen├ęstration is a body of work created by artist, Samantha Hookway, that engages forms of histories–art, craft, American and world– using the window motif. Hookway’s believes that the bombardment of glowing screens of contemporary culture functions similarly to a window. It is this interstitial space that drives the artist, as well as an obvious love for Alberti’s metaphor for a picture (a window to the world in his de Pictura). Hookway has referred to her Fen├ęstration as “sculptural hybrids between a stained glass window and a painting.”
