ART 3812 Art + Community

Art + Community: introduces students to the concepts and craft of community-engaged art. In their assignments students will collaborate on and create unique and impactful artistic statements addressing community concerns. The "ART + " series addresses specific issues impacting the local community and ways to harness the power of visual art to generate engagement and dialogue — particularly in communities of color and immigrant and low-income populations—around these issues. Coursework will emphasize both group and individual art making strategies, and can be taken by non-art majors. This course only satisfies the CORE requirement when offered as a service learning course.
