Earth Art


INSTRUCTOR: Gretchen Scharnagl


SCHEDULE: Monday, Wednesday, 2:00 PM – 3:15 PM

Course Description

What is the dirt on earth? In this course you will begin with the geological origin story. Learn what relationship artists have had with the earth, with an emphasis on contemporary artists. Discover what the Anthropocene is, and why should you care? What is climate change, and can we change? And we will look at our local landscapes! Through environmental, political, spiritual, and everyday, filters we will consider the earth beneath our feet and imagine the plants and animals that are or were the occupants on Carl Sagan’s blue speck.
