ARTS 219 - ART AND INTERACTION
This course concerns itself with two primary questions: What are the challenges, limitations, or barriers of access in a particular population? How can creative engagement be used most successfully to address the scope of these issues? Students acquire the methods and approach to work ethically and creatively in collaboration with underserved populations that, for complex sociological reasons, live peripherally to the mainstream of society. Current potential populations include the incarcerated, the medically fragile or elderly, those affected by mental illness, at-risk youth, adults with developmental disabilities, survivors of trauma, and addicted populations. Students select a fieldwork site, working in small teams to present art-making workshops, encouraging art as a means of communication and authentic self-expression. Field placement is supported by in-class experientials and studio time where students get to know each medium and approach as applicable to their population’s needs. The bulk of fieldwork will take place at the sites. However, on-campus options are also offered.
