Sustainability + Design = ReThinking
Sustainability can be both complex and simple at the same time. Join us and discover ways to rethink everyday practices and choices and then take that knowledge to your art practices. This course is not limited to visual artists. It is also designed for business owners focused on the bottom line and writers interested in spreading the word. Each week you will be asked to present on different subjects. Other weeks we will discuss the latest trends and pioneers of sustainable practices. You will discover how nature solves complex problems simply. This class will be as paperless as possible so you are required to have an email address that can be shared with the instructor and classmates.expand collapse
