Student Projects and Workshops
UArts101: Wallet 3000 Challenge
Living Arts students in UArts101 were asked to create an ideal wallet using scrap material as part of their coursework. Students interviewed classmates to gain additional perspectives and uncover hidden uses, sketched alternative concepts and produced prototypes of their final design.
UArts101: Flight Artifact
Living Arts students in UArts101 created music, artwork, video, poetry, models and more that fit the theme of a museum exhibition about flight. Through this piece, they were asked to explore their creative process and the connections that guided their creative task. Here's a small sampling of their work.
