To live a creative life is an art form. "Creative Living: A Practicum" is a companion class to the Artist as Entrepreneur, focusing on exchange with other creatives, taking place in the classroom and out in the field. Students will explore the making and doing of big ideas and what inspiration means in the real world, looking deeply into the creative process. This class takes creative apprenticeship beyond traditional classroom walls with a diverse series of readings, special events, and professional development panels. Students will research and create visual narratives, explore diverse cultural outlets and interview guest lecturers and each other in order to storyboard and write narratives for possible future scenarios for creative lives in New York City and elsewhere. The course will make use of discussion boards, Pinterest, Instagram, as well as writing and presenting through Google Slides, in-class presentations and other forms of digital media. Readings may include works by Elizabeth Gilbert, Sharon Louden, John McPhee, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and Roxane Gay.
