The arts curriculum at Antioch College introduces students to multiple perspectives and strategies of art making, including interdisciplinary, community-based, and global contexts, both in the classroom and through work experiences.
Students will develop their own creative intelligence and hone their analytical and conceptual skills through disciplined ongoing and evolving practice. The arts curriculum provides a rich environment for students to develop a critical vocabulary for understanding and analyzing contemporary art culture, and for developing an evolving practice that investigates particular aesthetic, ethical, and representational dilemmas in art making.
Artist residencies will be a critical element of the cultural life of the community and an integral part of the curriculum. A variety of contemporary artists working in the fields of performance, dance, drawing, music, photography, video, sculpture, painting, printmaking, sound, creative writing, and more will be invited to live and work within the community. They will lead workshops, give lectures, create projects, develop and present their own work, critique student work, and, occasionally, collaborate with faculty within a class project.
