An aesthetic experience is the spark of enlightenment or connection in an ‘aha’ moment when things make sense and everything becomes clear! Such a bridging moment has been described by James Joyce as ‘aesthetic arrest’.
This course will assist participants to create their own bridges between many and varied ways of knowing, crossing disciplinary divides between art, spirituality, religion and science.
Through a series of visual explorations, using a variety of materials and concepts, participants will become familiar with a connected approach to aesthetics by way of drawing, painting, experimenting and map making.
Entering into the aesthetic experience opens up creativity that will be brought into physical form, through individual and group projects. Shared portals create cultural connections across discipline, language and culture.
