#Most #SpiritedTeachers & #Homecoming #Friday in the #ArtStudio

“Art Can Be Anything.” It is not defined by medium or the means of its production, but by a collective sense that it belongs to a category of experiences we have come to know as “art”.”

“101 Things Learned in Art School”, Kit White, 2011, MIT Press

As we wrap up the week – describe how you see this course or the lessons learned in the course as being able to be related to your life outside of this studio space. Consider not the assignments or techniques associated with the assignments, but how you can use those ideas elsewhere in your life.
