XCO EVENTS: 090203 Visiting Talk
Faye Stanley
Arts Engagement & Arts in Public/Private Education

This presentation will introduce students to notions and practices of arts and education in K-12 and other expanded contexts. It will also address pedagogy and the history of educational institutions as part of the tradition of 'experimental communities'. Students interested in developing projects in actual community school contexts will be able to do so throughout the semester, and this session will serve as an early orientation in that direction.
