I am currently taking an online class with The Alternative Arts School. The mission of TAAS is to create a global community of artists who use the tools of art to create a better society. The instructors are among the brightest thinkers and practitioners in the world of art, and the student body is global, diverse in age, nationality, education levels and are themselves emerging leaders in both art and their local communities.
The class I am taking is The Art and Culture of Nature, taught by Mark Dion, who encourages us to examine ideas about nature, and to challenge our own ideas about nature. His gentle persona, along with his own years of experience, lead to discussions which always seem to end too early.
One of our assignments this week is to create a one minute nature video, I have attached mine here:
