Eco Sculpture: Social Practice Art Studio- On Campus

This course guides students through the process of creating ecologically-engaged art in a variety of media, from initial inspiration, artistic research, material exploration, construction, and installation / presentation. Emphasis will be placed on working with and responding to the natural world, with the SAIC Sculpture Department's Knowledge Lab as our base. Plant tending and harvesting in the K-Lab Garden, foraging walks around downtown, and trips to nearby art and ecological spaces will provide inspiration. This course is designed in partnership with Knowledge Lab, the SAIC sculpture departments' living laboratory with an innovative, green, and sustainable focus.
