This course unleashes an embodied integral consciousness of art. The student mobilizes the major art perspective by exercising formal methodologies; comes to learn how to integrate these method-perspectives into meta-theories and higher-order understandings; explores the expressive distinctions amongst various art media; activates his or her own historical consciousness; enacts integrally-empowered art criticism; and considers the possibility of an emergent wave of art making: integral art.
Course Learning Outcomes
By the end of the course students should be able to:
- Enact multiple methodologies of art.
- Integrate these enactments of multiple methodologies of art into higher orders of understanding.
- Recognize differences in art media and adjust their methodological engagement according to what medium is being encountered.
- Evaluate and discern quality in works of art including ascertaining when a work of art might be integral.
