Did you know that both CST 227 Business and Professional Communication and CST 229 Intercultural Communication transfer to George Mason University and satisfy upper-level courses?

CST 227 is the equivalent to COMM L320 Business and Professional Communication

CST 229 is the equivalent to COMM L305 Foundations of Intercultural Communication, a requirement for all communication majors.

Maximum participants: 15  Free. Open to the NVCC community, including faculty, staff and students. No experience necessary. Contact: Amy Gilley, agilley@nvcc.edu

Students will experiment with film and video using techniques from Video Art.  This form of art combines the immediacy of video with an abandonment of traditional cinematic narratives. Participants will study various Video Artists from Nam June Paik to Shirin Neshat, before planning and creating their own video art project.

Initial meeting will be on Saturday Oct 4 at 11:00 am in CT 304.  Schedule for production and study will be created at that time.The results will be shown during the Liberal Art Exhibit in Spring 2015.

Free Theatre Workshops at the AN Campus

ONE DAY WORKSHOPS TO PROMOTE THEATER COURSES:

All held in CM 315.  20 participants maximum. Free. Open to the NVCC community,including faculty, staff and students. No experience necessary. Contact: Amy Gilley, agilley@nvcc.edu

Saturday Sept 13:  10- 2:00 pm : scene painting exercise. It would actually be an exercise called “sight sizing” which allows one to transfer a small drawing into a large cartoon. This cartoon then can be used for a drop/large canvas. It is a lot of fun, and doesn’t require too much in the way of drawing skills.

 Saturday Oct  25:  10- 2:00 pm : costume basics for Halloween.  I would explain a bit about how one creates a theatrical character through understanding the psychology or clothing.  Then I would provide a way to make a character from scraps, and left overs, and thrift store stuff,  that is unique and cheap. Sort oflike ” dress up ” but for adults, and with some academic material.

 Saturday Nov 15:    10- 2:00 pm : newspaper dresses /construction techniques This would be a way to bridge 3-D design with theater. We would use costume construction techniques to make dresses from newspaper. We would use patterns, alter then, and ‘sew’ a dress. This could be of interest to art students as well as people interested in costume and fashion.
