How do artists make art? How do we evaluate it? In this new course offering, which will be available in Spring 2017, students of all levels get to experience firsthand the particular challenges and rewards of art making through practical engagement with five fields – Creative Writing, Visual Art, Theater, Dance, and Music – under the guidance of professionals. Two-week units introduce each field’s history and critical context, and include a local fieldtrip. In class, students will focus on articulating and applying the basic principles of aesthetics, with the ultimate goal of designing, collaborating on, and critiquing original projects across disciplines and media.
