Students and Studies
Community, art and environment study module is offered every year in the Department of Art Education. In this study module students can concentrate on either environmental art issues or on performative art questions. Community, art and environ- ment studies provide students with the basic skills to carry out environment and community art. In addition, students are pro- vided with the skills to apply new methods in combining the fields of art education and the activities of various art and cul- tural institutions, organizations and informal communities. The purpose of these studies is to refine students own artistic skills and reform the work between different organizations, commu- nities and art education.
This study module aims to familiarize students with the strat- egy of site specific art, community art, performance art, land art, environmental art and art happenings. The module is set in the context of the Northern culture. Many of workshops take place in outdoor environment in Rovaniemi and surroundings or further north in Lapland.
