The writer Annie Dillard says that how we spend our days is how we spend our lives. College is a unique time to question how we spend those days and develop tools for lifelong independent learning, creating, exploring, and centering. We will look at practice as both verb and noun, pay special attention to the ways in which 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.
