Investigation NOW: The Familiar, Strange, and Transformative

This semester, the Department of Art Education at Virginia Commonwealth University is offering an art-based multi-disciplinary educational program for 8th and 9th grade students. The program uses art as a form of inquiry to explore contemporary issues (to include concepts such as tension, risk, and distortion) that transcend disciplinary boundaries. Through the hands-on exploration of the contemporary, students will dig into how these ideas intersect and overlap in the real world. This class takes place for 10 three-hour sessions on Friday evenings and is taught by graduate and undergraduate pre-service art educators.

This program is for you if:

  • You love thinking across boundaries.
  • You enjoy experimenting with different ways of making art.
  • You see art as an important part of the world.
  • You want to dig deeply into contemporary art ideas.
