About the Course:

Art is a powerful tool for individuals and groups to communicate powerful messages across wide audiences of people. Various groups throughout history have directly taken hold of art in order to influence and affect social change. Through this course we will examine how art acts as a venue through which various communities are able to dialogue, share ideas, and organize. This course will emphasize exposure to and direct hands-on exploration of a wide variety of forms and media. Through workshops, guest lectures, films, and discussions we will uncover the potential of the arts to interact with communities in order to empower marginalized voices, strengthen community, and enact social change.

How to Enroll:

CCNs will be given on the first day of class


The first day of class is on Monday, September 14, 2009

Due to unfortunate circumstances, we need to revamp the syllabus to just be classes on various art forms. The emphasis on Adobe Creative Suite has been reduced to 1-2 classes because of this. The rest of the classes will be visiting various forms of art and putting them into practice.


The changing of the syllabus and Labor Day also requires us to start the class much later than we would like to. We realize that the beginning date is after the "add date before fee" but we would still appreciate it if you would still check it out. To add the class, one would have to pay $5 for the wait fee, but we hope to make it worth your while.
