FNDN 1485 - Foundation Workshop: Walking and Art

Walking is associated with creativity in many fields, including science, philosophy,music, poetry and visual art. This course provides students with opportunities to use walking (and other forms of self-powered mobility) as a creative activity, using diverse approaches such as map-making, journal writing, drawing, photography, performance art, and sculpture. The studio activities in this course will take place outside and inside the classroom. Studio projects will be supplemented with readings and lectures. No special equipment is required, and students of all abilities and mobilities are welcome to take this course.
