Sustainability Courses

ArtMill is at the forefront of international non-formal educational opportunities, which encourage a cross-disciplinary studio environment, and is unique in its mission to combine creativity and sustainability (art and science) as its core mission. This unique education is across ages, applied to our summer camp program (ages 7-15) all the way up to University level groups.

 

We have led the way in developing a mentor-based approach to learning, which includes an exceptional program involving visiting artists, scholars, and science-based lectures by experts who have an active involvement in environmental sustainability. Students work one-on-one with nationally and internationally recognized professionals who challenge them to develop the full strength of their ideas and learn new skills.

 

We consider our studio time to be laboratory environments whereby students, mentors, and visiting scholars work collaboratively to explore ideas and processes. We highly encourage students to work with materials and ideas that are new to them.

 

We welcome students from a wide range of backgrounds to create original work with a conceptual or applied purpose.

Our goal is to prepare students for opportunities that may integrate their creativity with science and scholarly research, with a practical application in mind. We encourage project-based learning based on real-world problem solving.

 

Our curriculum is unique to the incoming group each year and can be thought of as an experiment in devising solutions to the challenges we face as a society today, and how to engage with the issues of sustainability, while creating the conditions for changing perspectives. There are no creative solutions without creative processes, and at ArtMill we strive to provide a place of action for inspiration, information and implementation.

 

We offer the ArtMill facility as a research arena for students to make their ‘dream’ projects, to help speed the shift to sustainable living. Our objective is to foster a collaborative learning space to raise public awareness of environmental issues through the arts and sciences, and to develop new projects that can have a global impact.

Robert Root Bernstein, a 1981 MacArthur Prize Fellow studying at UCSD 20 years ago, took it upon himself to look at the biographies of the top 100 scientists who lived over the last 200 years. He found that every great scientist was not only accomplished in his field but in fine arts as well. Not surprisingly, Bernstein says, "(there) shouldn't be two cultures as currently exists, one favoring artists and the other scientists."
