Event Description

Wicked Arts Assignments with Melissa Bremmer and Emiel Heijnen

Inspired by the 2020 book Wicked Arts Assignments, this session provides participants with insight into why an art assignment should be considered a work of art and learn to design inspiring and contemporary arts assignments. You will leave the session with awe-inspiring, poetical, bold, and political arts assignments for your own context.

Registrants receive a recommended supply list, applicable digital resources, and Zoom meeting link one week prior to each session.

Camp activities are largely designed to make use of materials and tools you might have at home, to encourage repurposing and seeing everyday objects in a new light.

Session participants can request a professional development certificate of completion reflecting total earned participation hours.
