MIAD president teaches Approaches to Making course

Jeffrey Morin, president of the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD), has taken on teaching duties in addition to his role as president of the college. Internationally recognized for his book art, papermaking, letterpress prints and fine art, Morin also brings his experience as a graphic design instructor to “Approaches to Making: The Figure,” a junior-level New Studio Practice: Fine Arts course at MIAD.

“I decided to return to the classroom because I love teaching. I want to learn how students have changed since I last taught solo before coming to MIAD in 2015,” explains Morin. “I want to learn what faculty go through in setting up and conducting a class.”

“Approaches to Making: The Figure” explores how the figure has been addressed by artists over time and through multiple media and eras. Students research chosen subject areas and complete hands-on exploration through studio projects. Morin’s class, hosted in MIAD’s Printmaking Lab, focuses on monotype prints.

In addition to teaching and presidential duties, Morin is an active member of MIAD’s creative community. Several of his monoprints are featured in “After Hours: Showcasing the Work of MIAD Staff,” an exhibition hosted at MIAD’s offsite Gallery at The Ave. The exhibition is on view until October 7, 2023.
