    Actionable Art

    Can’t sit still? Neither can I. Join me as we move our bodies and engage our senses in the act of creating art that connects us to our community and links our creative and physical well-being. In Actionable Art, students are introduced to unique physical and creative activities that raise awareness of the natural, cultural, and physical environment around them. Over four weeks, students will work on independent and group projects while participating in low-pressure group activities that enhance the bond between embodied experiences and the physical process of creating and engaging with art. This is your chance to create art that classrooms cannot contain. No art experience required!
