SYE 4504 - Threads, Gold and Marigolds: Rasa in 21st Century India

Hours: 4
SYE 4504 students will learn about themselves as they make connections between art and culture in traditional and contemporary India. This J-term class will include on-campus class time intended to provide students with background information about the geography, social and political history and culture of India. The Indian aesthetic concept of rasa will be introduced. Each student will identify a personal research topic to investigate while visiting the Sanskriti International Artist Residency Program near Delhi, India. Sanskriti maintains an excellent art library and several on-site museums: The Museum of Everyday Life, The Museum of Terra Cotta and the Museum of Indian Textile. The two and a half week travel segment will include a series of art workshops and field trips that will invite participants to create their own artworks in a variety of traditional styles and media. Upon their return, students will present an exhibition of their artwork accompanied by a poster session about both their academic research and their creative production.
Notes: International travel required; extra fee required.
