UACC 226 Collaborative Studio: The Art of Engagement

1.5 - 3 credits undefined hours
200 level undergraduate course

The University Common Curriculum reinforces the fundamental link between art theory and practice. In this Collaborative Studio course, students from all disciplines at UArts will be challenged to collaborate on making work in public space, and to engage directly with the audience as participant. The component themes for the course will be: Viewer/Audience as Participant, Communities within Cities, Identity and Political Expression, and Creative Practice as Activism. Readings and lectures will inform students of artistic approaches to community engagement, public space, and political activism. Building on these references, students will develop final collaborative projects that will make use of each student’s background and skills. Students will work in various small groups over the course of the semester, and gather together to offer guided critique on each other’s efforts.

Collaborative Studio engages students in cross-disciplinary and collaborative processes utilizing cooperative, interdisciplinary techniques and approaches to generate collaborative student processes and projects.
