In this innovative class, students will explore various facets of ‘experiential learning’ through a hands-on abstract perspective. This artful inquiry creates a space for students to position themselves as learners while reflecting on themes such as learner-autonomy, decision-making, self-directed learning and vulnerability as part of the personal and professional growth process.
Students will be taught four projects, learning new techniques using unconventional tools to create colourful abstract drawings and paintings experimenting with this creative and intuitive method of learning.
No previous art experience required. Materials list supplied.
