Art & Ideas: Wonder
Has the age of wonder passed? Can we get our wonder back? If so, how? Join Wendy O’Brien on an exploration of wonder that combines deep looking and conversations on specific artworks in the AGO collection, with making and doing in the studio. Through the investigation of a variety of works, we will consider and compare artworks of monstrous scenes with those inspiring beauty; move through the extraordinary and the ordinary; and conclude by reflecting on whether the source of wonder is to be found in ourselves or in the world. Activities will range from walking exercises, to unconventional looking, representational sculpture, and abstract drawing. Accompanied by a selection of inspiring readings, students will be encouraged to rediscover their wonder.
This Course meets in Seminar Room 3 in the Weston Family Learning Centre. All materials included.
