Class Description:

This course will be exploring the concept of migration through an artistic and creative expression. Drawing on paintings, music, poetry, and sculptures from racialized and local artists, this course will examine how we can study migration through art. Drawing on themes of home, belonging, and identity, we will go over how artists like Warsan Shire, Jacob Lawrence, and Mona Hatoum have communicated critical concepts of migration through their art.

Participants will have the opportunity to create and work on their own artistic expression through either painting, poetry, drawing, dance, music, etc. Please note that you do not need an established art practice or art experience to take this course.
