ctc-thumbnailThe show airs at 6 p.m. on WNET’s Channel Thirteen; at 5, 7 and 11 p.m. on WLIW21; and 5:30 p.m. on NJTV. After airing, the segment and full episode will be posted on metrofocus.org.

For the segment, Judith Burton, Professor of Art Education and Coordinator of the Art and Art Education program in the Department of Arts and Humanities; was interviewed in TC’s “Fabrication Lab” about the growing role of technology of all types in the creation of contemporary art.

The segment also features an interview with Richard Jochum, Associate Professor of Art and Education. Jochum and his students were taped in the Myers Media Art Studio as students worked at iMac computer work stations designing objects and then making them on 3D printers.

Recently approved by New York State, the Advanced Certificate Program in Creative Technologies (CTC) is a new, 15-point specialization within existing master’s and doctoral programs in Art and Art Education. Students explore the relationship between Art, Technology, and Education, a critical trifecta which is an interdependent force at the forefront of primary, secondary, and university-level teaching and learning.

In a world of increasing digital fabrication and social practice, it is more essential than ever to demonstrate proficiency beyond any one skill set. The CTC program combines new and emerging digital tools and materials with more familiar studio materials such as clay, paint, and cardboard.
