"
OUTDOOR SCHOOL is a unique multi-disciplinary and experiential course where students will participate in activities that examine recent developments in contemporary art, including social practices, site-specific interventions, and the use of ephemeral live materials including plants. The course will include various studio assignments, readings, field trips, visitors, and in-class workshops that offer opportunities to explore aspects of outdoor education and environmental art.

OUTDOOR SCHOOL will look at recent examples from contemporary art, and consider the practices of various other cultural practitioners including naturalists, creative activists, farmers, navigators, and horticulturalists. Students will create and participate inSurvival Tips workshops, do outdoor reading performances, go on hikes and forays, join a club, and create multi-disciplinary environmentally-themed final projects.

We will develop collaborative relationships with other departments and amateur clubs on campus, which may include projects in association with Agriculture, Horticulture/Landscape Architecture, the Honeybee Research Lab, and the Guelph Arboretum. Projects will be in various media, including live performance, event or action based works, video, photography, and artist multiples."

- Professor Diane Borsato
