The writer Annie Dillard says that how we spend our days is how we spend our lives. With school as we know it upended, we have a unique opportunity to develop daily habits that contribute to lifelong independent learning and creating. We will look at practice as both verb and noun, paying special attention to the ways we embody the work (and change) we want to see in the world. Through somatic activities, talks with invited guests, projects, and readings (across the arts, sciences, philosophy, religion, and activism), we’ll revel in the interplay between process and product, solitude and community, structure and freedom, life and art.
Prerequisites and Restrictions:
This course is designed for all students, whether new to or experienced in somatic and/or art making practices.
