Continuing Education Course

SEM: 42


Integrating the Arts for Educators


Learn how to empower students to think critically and creatively through interdisciplinary art projects that are influenced by the current exhibit in the Ben Maltz Gallery. Begin the day by viewing and discussing the current exhibition in Otis’ Ben Maltz Art Gallery “Freeway Studies #2: Inside the Quad”. To create this exhibition, curators Meg Linton and Jeseca Dawson embarked on an unplanned journey through artist studios in Los Angeles’ diverse and complex metropolis. The exhibition is about serendipity, or the element of surprise that occurs when allowing the journey to unfold naturally rather than predetermined. Using the exhibit as a springboard, you’ll engage in rich discussions about contemporary art and artists in this region. Then you’ll be guided to produce a work of art that is influenced or inspired by an aspect of the exhibit. Workshop covers themes and questions regarding contemporary art; provides ways to enrich student learning; and builds student’s self-confidence, motivation, and self-discipline.
