ARTD 299 / Japanese Aesthetics

The main focus of this course is the exploration of how Japanese aesthetics can be applied to your own investigations and practices as students in various disciplines. Through the study, exposure and immersion to Japanese aesthetics and culture, it is hoped that students will acquire a better understanding of how the idea of beauty permeates through most aspects of Japanese culture and how these ideals may be applied to their own work, interactions, and understanding of their own surrounding.

Educational outcomes include gaining new knowledge of Japanese arts and culture, familiarizing Japanese tradition and customs, creation of projects that will speak to others on a practical, emotional and intuitive level, applying Japanese aesthetics, theories, and philosophies to your own disciplinary area and acquiring new persepectives to enrich your life and develop into well-rounded beings.
