6 weeks total: June 05-23 (3 weeks in the field) & (3 weeks online - independent portfolio)
The Field School is an intensive 3-week summer program that puts students in touch with various rural landscapes while focusing on site and context-based approaches to art creation. The Field School is designed as an experiential course, meaning that students learn through the experience and process of understanding place, and through the process of making of newvartworks on-site. While living and working in the field, students create and discuss various approaches to art creation. Students may explore many mediums including: writing, photography, sculpture, drawing, sound recording, and land-based art; oral histories. Post-studio art practices such as dialogical and context-based actions are also artforms that work well in the Field School environment. Topics that are discussed and of which students have explored include: nature and process, phenomenology, borderlands, pastoralism, wayfaring, walking, pilgrimages, ecologies, colonialism, ownership and exploitation, conservation, cultural representation, settler-scapes, reconciliation, idealized landscapes, dualities, centers and peripheries.
