CULTIVATE CREATIVITY AND A PROGRESSIVE APPRECIATION OF THE ARTS
WITH ONE OF the most edgy and creative cities in the world as our classroom, this journey challenges its participants to consider diverse art forms and the purpose, meaning, and stories behind each work. Via immersion in artistic environs, exposure and hands-on deep dives into different mediums, participants will explore the motivations behind and the impact of various art forms, and gain a deeper understanding of the power of art within both mainstream and alternative culture.
Art: more accessible and relevant than you think.
