Video: Unboxing take-home sculpture kits
Faculty and staff in the Department of Studio Arts have developed take-home studio kits for students to use as part of their online classes in ceramics, sculpture, fibres and material practices, and printmaking.
Juan Ortiz-Apuy, an assistant professor in the sculpture program, created a series of “unboxing videos” that show off his program’s kits on YouTube so that current and prospective students can see them.
The kits were developed by a team of instructors and technicians who spent the summer hammering out technical details for the kits to ensure a quality visual arts curriculum could be delivered remotely to students.
Creating take-home kits required everyone to reimagine materials and methods from the ground up. The department ordered new materials, tested them, and made sure they are compatible with Concordia facilities and with curriculum objectives.
