ED202 - Engaging Students in Community Arts
This course offers an experiential and theoretical introduction to community-based arts, an art form that brings artists together with people of a community of location, spirit, or tradition, to create art that is based in the life and the issues of that community. This semester’s project, a collaboration with students from Greenfield School, will culminate in an exhibit/installation. By working closely with the parents’ group, school staff and community residents, the Moore and Greenfield students will co-create an exhibit/installation that will be exhibited at Moore College of Art. Exhibition dates: to be determined. In addition to gaining skills in community-based arts processes (i.e. research, collaborative art-making, and facilitation skills), students will also gain exposure to the national and local landscape of community-based arts through academic research and field trips to Philadelphia-based community arts sites and/or events. They will also learn about the history and theory of community arts, and be able think critically about the issues of race, class, and aesthetics—issues that are inherent in the practice. Based on the scope of a student's project or level of study there may be additional costs for materials and supplies Satisfies: Major Requirement
