The Art & Rural Environments Field School is an intensive off-campus summer program designed for students interested in the intersection of art and the rural environment. The Field School experience puts students in touch with various rural landscapes and focuses on site and context-based approaches to art creation. While living and working together in the field and on the road, students create site-interpretation artworks exploring various mediums including photography, sculpture and drawing, as well as dialogical projects, social actions and collaborative experiments.
The Field School session is open to University of Colorado students, GW Corcoran School of Arts & Design students and students from further afield. The program partners with various other schools. In most cases, the 6 hours of Art Practices course credits will transfer to one’s home university. There are both advanced 4000 level undergraduate course credit or 5000 graduate level credit offerings. Fieldwork for the 2018 session will take place May 14th - June 1st in Southern Colorado, New Mexico and Utah.
Application deadline: April 22nd, 2018
