Collaborate Course - ARTS100
The Collaborate course brings a teaching artist, Oxy students, and youth from the neighboring Highland Park schools together in creative collaboration. During the first six weeks of the semester, Oxy students learn core arts education and public engagement pedagogy and develop lesson plans for an original after school art workshop. In the following 6 weeks of the semester, Oxy students will collaboratively lead their workshops for local 4+5th or 6-8th graders, culminating in a final public presentation. You are required to submit an application to register for this class. The class meets Mondays / Wednesdays, 4-6pm.
