Walking as Artistic Practice (updated for Summer 2020)

by Ellen Mueller on May 3, 2020, no comments

Did you see my posts from last summer, and wish you could take my Walking as Artistic Practice class, but you were far away from Minneapolis? Good news! This summer I’m offering a new version that is online as a remote learning experience!

This workshop is designed as a brief survey of some of the origins, theories, processes, and manifestations of walking as art. Read, watch, and discuss perspectives on walking-based projects. Using this information as a springboard, students will complete their own walking exercises, and execute original walking-based projects. This summer we will be covering the following three topics: walking as ritual, who gets to walk and where?, and archiving walking. Open to students ages 18 and above.

This remote class will be conducted via Google Meet. It will include presentations by the instructor, class discussions, and opportunities for students to share their work.

Required hardware: A computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access, a camera, and microphone for class meetings and to capture and upload work. Required supplies for the first class: Pen or pencil; notebook or sketchbook; digital or cell phone camera.

Register Before: July 20
If the minimum enrollment is not met by the deadline above, the class will be canceled on this date. Registration will remain open after this date if the minimum enrollment has been met.

Class Savings: Register on or before May 15 and save $25. Register for more than one class at a time and receive $25 off each additional class (same-day registrations only).
