Cultural Approaches to Production     4100/6100     Spring 2009

Cultural Approaches to Production is a studio/seminar course at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago that helps prepare artists and designers to teach cultural production strategies to people of all ages, lived realities and experience levels, and to facilitate a variety of public learning environments, particularly with K-12 students in schools.

In Drea Howenstein’s spring course students are using social/cultural networking as a vital means to research subjects and content for creative arts curriculum development, thus, increasing their knowledge of  critical world issues, transdisciplinary innovation, and politically, and environmentally engaged artistic practices. 

As a class project, we have created a toolbox of resources and ideas that inspire our own practices as artist educators. It is our hope that our toolbox might also be a resource for others to help them to design effective arts learning activities and forge new collaborative forms of cultural production.

This is our toolbox!
