Charette: Self + Other Voices

Course No. FND 140B  Credits: 1.5
Faculty Barbara Chira | Christian Wulffen | Clifford Borress | Josť Carlos Teixeira | Kidist Getachew | Lauren Herzak-Bauman | Petra Soesemann

This one-half semester course is framed by the theme of Self and other Voices. As an exploration of one's self in relation to culture and society, the course facilitates increased self-knowledge and helps students uncover their views of "other." The students and instructor work collaboratively to define and explore "other voices," cultivate connections with those other voices, and develop creative responses. Through sustained exploration of one theme, the Charette gives priority to the development of skills for critical and creative thinking, experiential learning, problem-solving, and collaboration. Through materials exploration, making processes, and critique, the Charette forges links with the visual, tactile, and manual skill sets being taught in other Foundation classes. Each student's effort, progress, and work will contribute to a project developed over 7 weeks, to include both a charette documentation log and a 2D, 3D, and/or 4D form. Offered fall.
