Re-entry: Using Art to Bridge the Study Abroad Experience
This innovative workshop is designed for students who have recently studied abroad and/or for those who have been pursuing a degree in the US who will soon be returning home. Working with professional artist and educator Todd Drake, participants will inventory their significant international experiences. Todd will teach participants how to create an impactful and reflective image that represents the participants’ time abroad. Then, using a buffet of approaches and materials combining objects, images and reflective writing, they will create a work of art that gets to the heart of their time abroad. Participants will leave with a finished work of art that can be displayed in an on-campus exhibition and/or photographed to be documented and shared on a website.
This workshop addresses re-entry in a new way – one that celebrates, synthesizes and offers ample time for self-reflection and self-expression.
