Intro 

I found this writing project and format really fascinating. Having the freedom to explore whatever subjects we wanted however we chose was liberating and luxurious. I tried to be conscious of not just repurposing old knowledge (though I did at times) but also discovering and presenting new subjects. The primer format felt very much like …

Intro to Alyson’s Primer 

This primer spans the senses of the aesthetic experience with refreshing surprises such as "jam and marmalade." It explores several mediums and art forms that I previously had known little or nothing about. For example, a triptych is a three paneled painting. I had though that a photomontage was simply a series of photos, however learned …

An Introduction to Mia’s Primer by Kiran 

An Introduction to Mia’s Primer by Kiran I met Mia, a poet and a teacher, last September in another class.  While I already knew who she was, I enjoyed getting to know her more thoroughly through her posts.  She began the semester asking a variety of questions about what makes someone an artist.  Her first …

Call Him daverafe: One David’s Introduction to the Other David’s Primer 

Maybe it was written in the stars that a David would write the other David's primer introduction. Or maybe it was only written in the GoogleDoc. Believe whichever truth you choose, but believe this truth along with it: David Adler's primer is nothing like Dave Rafe's. David Adler's primer pays no attention to the aesthetic …

Introducing Kiran’s(klp2140) Primer 

Although I felt sorry for not knowing who Kiran was, it was an interesting feeling to get to know Kiran first through her (hopefully you are female??) unique and mysterious name (trying to figure out who would be the one that would match this name among the faces I saw in class...), and then through …

Introduction to Kelsey’s Primer 

Kelsey’s primer is a delightful fuse of contemplations on her experiences as an educator, graduate student and editorial assistant. Her passion for English is clear in all of her posts. From her observations on the use of language in posts such as “K is for K,” “P is for Precarious” and “A is for …

Introduction to Dadler’s Primer 

“Anyway, the point is, it seems to me that the act of matching a form with content is often an attempt to merge education with aesthetic experience. Bam. There’s our class right there” (Dadler). The commingling of humor, aestheticism, literature, Robot Chicken, doodles, and fighting swans present in Dadler’s primer indicates how this class’s issues …

An Introduction for Jessica Lussier’s Primer 

I distinctively remember the first time I met Jessica Lussier; it was on the first day of our Education and the Aesthetic Experience class. I sat in the same table as her and immediately gravitated towards her quick wit, eclectic style, and warm personality. I was a nervous wreck; Spring 2014 marked my first semester …

An Introduction for Jenny’s Primer 

I picked out this thought-provoking quote from Jenny's closing primer, which she named after its author, because I believe it reflects one of the main aspects of her approach; questioning. The ability to question oneself is an extremely valuable one and, sadly, not frequently observed in teachers. As educators, we are typically required to assume …

In posts ranging from Agnes Martin-inspired Google doodles to Janet Zweig's subway art to Joan Fontcubera's "selfie" exhibition, Lee uses specific works of art to illustrate questions of technology, perception, and collaboration. Other entries take …

Introduction to meeshelle’s Primer 

Meeshelle is curious about culture, politics, and power. In her work she shows interest in the tensions and ambiguities between agency and determinacy; of humans and of art itself. She's very conversant in theater, and many other branches of aesthetic criticism. She speaks with familiarity of any number of artists, philosophers, and thinkers, and she …
