Working with Groups in Community Settings (OART-UT 1017)

This course provides students interested in exploring their artistic field of study in community settings or providing community service through the arts, with a foundation for working with small and large group structures in community settings. Students will gain an understanding of group theory and stages of group development as they impact the visiting artist’s work with community groups. Overview of social, political and cultural contexts for creating community-based work will be discussed in relation to entering into and engaging community groups in the creative process. Students will work in small groups to practice concepts and skills of working with groups in community settings and will prepare and present an individual project design for a visiting artist’s work with a community group, drawing on specific fields of artistic study and taking into consideration material covered in class lectures and discussions.
