School of Consciousness and Transformation MFA 7105 3.00
This course helps students to discover their artistic heritages and to locate the social, political, historical, psychological, and spiritual factors at the center of their art making. Students learn how to turn these factors into creative inquiry, a discovery-oriented process that ultimately expands and deepens their art practice. They explore a variety of questions: What do I care about as an artist? What are the concerns embedded in my work, and how can I be curious/learn more about them? Who are my artistic ancestors and peers—and what can their creative inquiry/artwork teach me? Creative inquiry may also include exploration of myth, dreams, reality, illusion, and the roles of trust, confidence, and taking risks in creative work. MFA student
