Ah the joy, the wonder, the fun? A study and practise of the artistic (it does involve destruction and creation) process of making wheatpaste in groups.
Imagine the joy one gets from making wheatpaste on their own but imagine that shared joy when we do it together. The goal of the class is to teach students not only how to create their own wheatpaste but also learning to utilize its physical applications. The class will cover a short range of subjects from a discussion on wheatpasting to final class which involves students using wheatpaste to apply stencilled images to a large canvas.
1. Welcome to wheatpaste! Please don't touch the walls
a. Meet your class, shake hands, smile, and enjoy the fact that you came to a ps class
b. A discussion of wheatpaste theory: the history, the composition, examples, and possible applications
c. What is wheatpaste? The composition and understanding of a non crazy glue
d. High five eachother and enjoy the fact you met new people
2. What am I wheatpasing?
a. Class works on creating stencil images for final class
b. Class makes wheatpaste for final class
a. Class applies stencils to canvas
b. Class ajourns one last time, we hug and depart to spread the knowledge
Aside from my sense of humor a potential lesson on wheatpasting would need to discuss aquiring some very tangible things such as:
1. A space to collaborate
2. Supplies & raw materials (Class can discuss in first lesson)
This isn't something that has to be set in stone rather this classes progression should be open to suggestion to anyone interested.
