Walking as Artistic Practice (Online)

This workshop is designed as a brief survey of some of the origins, theories, processes, and manifestations of walking as art. Read, watch, and discuss perspectives on walking-based projects. Using this information as a springboard, students will complete their own walking exercises, and execute original walking-based projects. The course will focus on the following three topics: embodiment, memory, and place. / Open to students ages 18 and above. View complete policies.

This online course will be synchronous, meaning students will meet together online weekly. Class meetings will be conducted via Google Meet and will include presentations by the instructor, class discussions, exercises, and opportunities for students to ask questions and share their work. Students will do walking exercises and assignments on their own.
