Yale Norfolk 2016


SPRING 2017 I am excited to announce a change in the academic structure taking place this summer at Yale Norfolk. Sculpture with Martin Kersels will be replacing Photography as one of the four areas of study. Kersels will be working with the students weekly utilizing simple sculptural materials, and running part of the seminar on performance art. The other three areas of study remain: Painting, Drawing and Printmaking. We will also continue to maintain a printer for any student who wishes to continue to work with digital photography. Under my tenure as Director at Yale Norfolk, the structure of the program has been built upon a mixture of structured class time with equivalent unstructured studio time for students to develop the skills necessary to build their own individual self-motivated studio practices. For many, this is the first time they will enter their studios without assignments and have to confront the unknown: a studio practice of their own making. When nominating students, please keep in mind that although we remain primarily a painting program, we are open to students who make work in any form. An important aspect to note when nominating is that we do not permit the use of power tools. Additionally, when nominating students, please keep in mind the social environment students will find themselves in. Norfolk,CT, is a very small town. All students and faculty work closely in one large two story “Art Barn” where each will receive a small but adequate individual work space with access to a larger communal work area. The students have 24/7 access to their studio and no curfew time at their host family homes. Students are housed in spare bedrooms in local family homes within walking distance to the estate. We share three meals together in the cafeteria and maintain a strict no visitor or leaving town policy. Please nominate talented students who will be good communal citizens and thrive in this insular closed working environment. We look forward to another wonderful summer, and appreciate your worthy nominations. With thanks, Samuel Messer
