Radical Art History – 6/16

19 Jun

The class was a success!  5 people attended, and it was all their first time to attend this particular class.  I did a basic survey of showcasing different artists, mediums, and theories while also explaining their relation to art, activism, and community.  More of the lesson plan will be posted here

Next week we will be meeting and conducting a slightly more specific survey of art and activism, but will be much more student driven. Opportunities will be provided for everyone to make their own work in relation to the work we are covering, thus establishing a more interactive learning experience for those involved.

Lesson plan for this coming Saturday will be posted soon. Thanks to all who came out and Meg for taking the photos! Looking forward to this week!
