This course will be an exciting romp through the world of community-based environmental art. Does it have a place within academia on a university campus? Over the course of four classes we’ll focus on themes such as building community through collaborative art projects, development of personal sense of place, and empowerment made through enhanced connectedness to the environment and to each other. Each class will be divided into two parts: first will be an interactive session where we will discuss the process of making community-based art from creative conceptualization through to the realization of a formal proposal; and second will be an experiential, or hands-on, session where we will design and create a community art project together. Students should come to class prepared be active, get dirty, and walk outside. In addition to staying up-to-date on class readings and resources, students also will be expected to work on, and contribute to, the community art project outside of class.
