Art and Environment

Art and Environment is a multidisciplinary graduate and upper division undergraduate studio/seminar course open to Art, Art History and Art Education majors. It is designed to increase awareness and understanding of the historical and contemporary interactivity of studio artists and the environment. We will be examining the natural world as media, catalyst and content. The course will include readings, discussions, presentations, screenings, field trips, guest lectures and art making with accompanying critiques. Most of these components will fall during class time, however, there will be field sessions that will require some time outside of the allotted class hours.


This course is open to all WVU students with no pre-requisites. The Art and Environment course can be taken for either undergraduate or graduate credit.
