Harnessing the Power of Creativity: The Practice of Looking
In the past year, people have spent more time in their homes than ever before. Travel has been severely limited, cultural events are reduced or on pause, and we see fewer people for less time. These circumstances might tempt you to retreat onto your couch and wait for the world to reopen.
What if instead of looking outside of your surroundings for inspiration and new experiences, you had the tools to deeply connect with where you are? What could these skills add to your daily life, to your relationships, to your future education and career? Using fun and creative exercises, this class gives students the tools to feel more connected and see the wonder of the world more deeply wherever they are.
Students do not need to be experienced artists or have special art supplies to enjoy this class.
Our online classes consist of a pre-assignment, independent coursework, and final assignment, as well as live online class sessions with your teacher/other au pairs. Credit for J-1 visa students is 36 hours. Students earning J-1 visa credit must attend all sessions and complete all homework.
Students will receive a pre-assignment one week before class begins. Other independent coursework can be completed at your leisure before the deadline one week after online class ends.
