Art & Rural Environments Field School 2016

Event has passed.

Programs: Extraordinary

Led by Richard Saxton, Associate Professor in Art and Art History, Founder and Director of the Art & Rural Environments Field School.

The Art & Rural Environments Field School is an intensive off-campus course 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 rural environments and on the road, students create site-interpretation artworks exploring various mediums including photography, sculpture, printmaking, and drawing, as well as dialogical projects, social actions, and collaborative experiments.

The course is open to both CU-Boulder degree-seeking and nondegree students. Fieldwork for the 2016 session will take place throughout the American High Plains, the Rocky Mountain Range, and sites in Northern Arizona.

Enrollment for this class begins on March 7, 2016.
