In this advanced special topics course students will study theories of transformative learning and service learning as it applies in an intergenerational community setting through art study and art making. Students explore teaching, learning, and curriculum planning for learners across the lifespan through the development and implementation of a specific community/public arts project in tandem with members of that community and in some cases with creative collaboration/experience sharing with a partner institution(s). Each stakeholder (students, faculty and community members) has an equal role in planning and implementing the project. Students will study community/public art, service learning and transformative learning theory, how to write effective project proposals, community-based art curriculum, conduct visual research (plans/mock ups/sketches), and documentation of the process/project.
