Advanced Arts Workshop

Advanced levels of art making which extend artistic proficiencies and knowledge. Arts may include visual , written, or performance arts, or a combination of these.

Class description

This art course will take place at the Monroe Correctional facility and will be comprised roughly of half UW students and half prisoners at Monroe. It will explore public art through readings, journal responses, class discussions as well as group and individual projects. No previous art experience is necessary to enroll in this class. We will focus primarily on developing concepts for projects that explore both personal and social issues through public art projects. Through these project you will also learn the nuts and bolts of the public art process although that will not be the main focus of the course. This course requires students to pass a background check and training both online and at the prison in early January. If you are interested in taking this course next year, please contact me. I will be meeting with prospective students during the middle of fall quarter in preparation for next years course.
