Wicked Arts Assignments

Practising Creativity in Contemporary Arts Education

Edited with text by Emiel Heijnen, Melissa Bremmer. Interviews by Pavèl van Houten, Jorge Lucero, Nina Paim, Erik Schrooten, Stephanie Springgay.

Wicked Arts Assignments

Fun, poetical and inspiring challenges for teaching the arts—for students of all ages and teachers of all disciplines

The almost 100 arts assignments compiled in this instructive new volume are designed to foster cross-disciplinary creativity in the visual arts, performance, theater, music and design. Everyone who teaches the arts knows the value of the assignment that is seemingly simple but which nonetheless challenges participants, students and pupils to the maximum. In Wicked Arts Assignments the tasks are organized around the following themes: Go Public, Narrate, Remix, Explore Nature, Engage, Soul Search, Make Some Noise, Localize, Build & Move, Keep in Time and Hack.

The assignments can be carried out in various contexts, from primary schools to higher education, from home to online. They are intended to spark the imagination of both teachers and students, contributing to new, topical educational and artistic practices. The book is complemented by a theoretical framework and interviews with experts in contemporary arts and education.

Featured spreads are from Wicked Arts Assignments: Practising Creativity in Contemporary Arts Education, back in stock from Valiz! Organized around the following themes—Go Public, Narrate, Remix, Explore Nature, Engage, Soul Search, Make Some Noise, Localize, Build & Move, Keep in Time and Hack—this witty, poetic and uninhibited pedagogical goldmine collects approximately 100 arts assignments meant to foster cross-pollination and creative growth across visual arts, performance, theater, music and design practices. “A good assignment makes you smile,” Erik Schrooten explains in a published interview, “because it has something special, is unusual. A strong assignment is also sufficiently restricted to prevent students from drowning in a sea of possibilities. Personally, I like assignments that are made up of a number of consecutive instructions. Step one, step two, step three… You could call them guided assignments. Within the steps you allow total freedom, striking a balance between guidance and openness. As students become more skillful, your assignments can become more open. This means that a student’s personal fascination can become the starting point for an original creation.” continue to blog
