One of a series of four academic courses that casts a broad net to explore a variety of creative expressions from those collected by museums to those uncollected and taken for granted as objects of everyday life. This first course uses a case study approach to focusing on the concept of artists' individuality through time and across world cultures.

In the ADP I course, 'The Creators", we will look at the art and design practices that have been maintained by cultural groups throughout the eras. We will explore the circumstances that have made art and design "tick" with meaning from ancient periods up until contemporary times. We will also learn the language of art and design, and study works that are made with diverse methods, technologies, and media.

In addition to exploring the history and language of art and design, we will examine the social and cultural roles of the artist-designer.

  • What are the ways that creators communicate with their audiences?
  • What is the wellspring of inspiration that creators drink from as them make their work?
  • How do the aspects of one's social identity become presented through the creative process?
  • What are the missions and intentions of the artist/designers? What is your own mission as a creator?
  • And finally, what are the criteria that artist-designers use to measure success?

"The Creators" is a course in which we will explore the history of creative work, as well as the elements that constitute a creative practice. We will study art and design, as well as the artists, designers, and audiences that sustain the dialogue that surrounds it.
