Explore ideation strategies and weave conceptual and formal elements into creative project planning and design to rekindle personal artistic practice. Critique methods and visual presentation strategies will guide the coursework and inform teaching in the K–12 classroom. Participants will leave the course reinvigorated to continue their artistic process and operate as teaching artists.
