This course will explore the relationship between art, community, and service. We will
examine artists who have considered community in their art making, discuss theories on
education that focus on the teacher/pupil relationship, and collaborate with local artist, Joe
Lamantia, and 4th/5th grade children at the Bloomington Project School on a community-
based sculpture project. As part of this larger project, IU students will partner with the
children and focus on issues of sustainability through a number of smaller creative projects.
The goal is to explore issues related to the well being of our planet through hands-on
projects with the children and for IU students to gain experience working within this unique
K-12 school setting.
