Guest speakers from these fields will give first hand accounts of the humor manufacturing process, from soup to nuts. Grade determined by a presentation in the last week that uses what has been learned both theoretically and on a practical level. The presentation might consist of cartoons on a theme, a humorous essay, a stand up routine, a funny website or something interesting.

Connecting A&D students with fourth graders at two elementary schools in Detroit through semester long visual and performance art projects, this class is a combination of work with the children and contextual studies that address issues of urban schools and the radical transformation creative projects have on cognitive development. Working intensively in Detroit every Friday, students learn first hand of the city's history and contemporary culture with field visits and projects. Planning for and reflecting on class projects, students develop close ties with the children and produce vibrant art that transforms the physical nature of the schools, and shared experiences across generations and cultures that transform the nature of connected creative work.

Art Workshops in Prisons

Instructor: Even,Tirtza

WN 2007
Credits: 3
Other: Theme

The United States is now one of the most incarcerating nations in the world. The prison industry is growing at a rapid rate with increasingly higher percentages of African-American, Hispanic, and Native American men, women and teen-agers serving time. In many states, including Michigan, educational and recreational activities have been eliminated from the prisons. This class gives students the opportunity to work inside a prison in one of two ways:

By participating in a video workshop whereby a group of students will join a group of inmates to produce short videos scripted, directed and edited collaboratively by both teams. The workshop will include tutorials in screen-writing, storyboarding, editing concepts and various other issues illustrated and critiqued through examples demonstrated to both groups (inmates/students).

By maintaining a solid relationship already established between the School of Art and Design with a number of prison facilities in Michigan, students can also themselves facilitate an art workshop for men, women or adolescents. Students opting for this second option will visit in small groups to a local correctional facility or youth facility, and work primarily with drawing and painting in adult correctional facilities, and with clay and collage, as well as drawing and painting, with the adolescent population.

Readings, films and discussion will provide background and training for working in a prison setting. The class will meet once a week to share art projects with each other, and to discuss films, reading material and issues that arise in the workshops, as well as for supervision and discussion with the instructor in small groups.

Mental Ecology II: Mind, Body, Environment — Art and Public Health

Instructor: Takahashi,Satoru; homepage

WN 2007
Credits: 3
Other: Theme

This course is a continuation of Mental Ecology I ( Fall 2006). This is a joint project of the School of Art and Design and the School of Public Health. For this project, students will investigate the degree to which art can influence issues of immediate concern to today's society through their studies in public health. During Phase One (in fall 2006) students created plans for art projects using the School of Public Health Building as their testing ground. In Phase Two (winter 2007) we will complete the proposed project for the School of Public health. This new environment will serve to cleanse both body and spirit, while becoming a place for "meditation and mediation," which will foster dialogue on the topic of society.

Many Ways of Seeing

Instructor: Inuzuka,Sadashi

WN 2007
Credits: 3
Other: Theme

This course will be taught in collaboration with the Washtenaw County Library for the Blind and Visually Impaired. In this class students will gain a technical knowledge of ceramics. There will be guest speakers, discussion, and one class each week will be held off campus at the Library to allow students to apply their understanding as they assist clients of the facility to create art works using clay. Students will learn alternate modes of perception and the skills to work with people who have limited visual abilities. The objective of this course is that in working together students and clients will gain confidence and find creative outlet through the sculptural potential of clay.
