UACC 267 Collaborative Studio: Superheroes and Kids - NEUARTS Edition



3 credits 67.5 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Are superheroes our modern mythology? How does such a mythology resonate with the youths of
inner city Philadelphia? Can this mythology inspire confidence, artistic expression, and hope
in our modern world? Explore these ideas by venturing out into a local after-school program
and engaging with a group of young people in creating performance and visual art based on
these questions/themes. This course is part of NEUARTS, Neighborhood Engagement at the
University of the Arts, a partnership between local children and teens making art together with
UARTS students. 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.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
