In this course students will make a portfolio of small works and take them abroad to exhibit internationally. While on tour, participants will create further works by interaction with their surroundings, take visual notes, and collect items to broaden artistic practice upon return home. Participants are to generate work that develops their own artistic voice, explores and expresses their visions open to the surrounding foreign cultural influences. As this course takes place largely abroad, the unique challenges of interpreting culture, representing profound experience, and learning from a mix of ancient and modern sources will frame artistic investigations.
