Foundation Students Use Digital Technology to Study Space

Students in Studio Foundation use 3D Modeling and 3D Printing to explore light, form and scale.  They learned 3D modeling to create forms that juxtapose mass and volume that were printed on a small scale.  That form was then “sliced” digitally and output to shapes that were cut and assembled by hand and compared with the small scale version to study light and the impact of a shift in scale scale on form These investigations are extensions of studies of light, space, and form in paper.

Art Education Research: Children’s Drawing’s From Uganda

Dr. Donna Tuman and Dr. SeungYeon Lee are collaborating with LIU and St. John’s University colleagues to study if preschoolers’ emergent literacy programs in rural Ugandan libraries impact school readiness. After storytelling/story-acting activities were conducted with 121 children, twice a week, over a 6month period, post-intervention testing revealed noted improvement. Literacy-based activity sessions included free drawing time, which yielded over 6,000 children’s drawings during the six-month period. The drawings are now being closely studied and analyzed to determine what characteristics of children’s artistic development in drawing advanced as an outcome of literacy intervention.
