UACC 229 Collaborative Studio: Compliance and Rebellion

1.5 - 3 credits undefined hours
200 level undergraduate course

Why do professors give assignments? Why do students welcome or resist being told what to do? In what ways does creativity emerge from compliance and rebellion? This Collaborative Studio Course seeks to explore the pedagogical framework of ‘the assignment’, the ways in which students negotiate challenges, how experiencing failure is a necessity to artists, and how rule sets - and the breaking of rule sets - can be a useful tool to help sustain and push one’s own art practice outside of academic institutions. Students will be challenged to create artworks in response to a set of obstructions. Obstructions are meant to challenge comfort zones and may range from unconventional mediums, emotional tone (from the serious to the humorous), time restrictions/endurance, confronting fears, random/chance, site-specific, and answering difficult questions, among others. Collaborative Studio engages students in cross-disciplinary and collaborative processes, building links and connections across the disciplines through diverse cultural experiences, critical writing and discussion.

Collaborative Studio engages students in cross-disciplinary and collaborative processes utilizing cooperative, interdisciplinary techniques and approaches to generate collaborative student processes and projects.
