EcoArt Matters Class: ART 141, Tuesdays 10-4
8/20-12/10, Laney Art Center Studio 130
Fall 2013 at Laney College
Make art about the most urgent issues of our time.
Learn creative problem solving strategies, combining art with science and activism.
Our studio-based artmaking will unfold within the context of the history of ecoart, community-based art and activist art, with visits from distinguished guest artists, scientists and community activists.
This semester we will attend the Bioneers Conference together, visit the San Francisco Dump’s Artist in Residence Program, engage in a collaborative ecoart project with studio artists at Creative Growth, meet with the “Bat Lady”, screen recent films about released environmental issues and much, much more!
Students will create art that matters the most to them, across disciplines in the visual arts, media arts, literary arts and/or performing arts.
Each semester our work together culminates in a public exhibition on campus or in the community.
At a time when the planet and social issues are in need of our most creative attention, this course helps to educate, advocate, and create hope for a healthy survival.
