Providing alternative perspectives to structured sketchbooks, visual journals are an art form and a creative outlet for artists, writers, craft enthusiasts, teachers, and students. This webinar provides strategies and approaches—as well as tips, techniques, and prompts for implementing the visual journal as part of your personal art practice and curriculum. Explore how visual journals can facilitate a connection between your studio and teaching practices, and how you can transfer this personal artistic research into model behaviors and processes for your students. By implementing the visual journal as a key component of your curriculum, you can encourage students to engage in personally relevant artmaking experiences that emphasize process over product—resulting in increased student motivation and creativity.

The College of Architecture would love the opportunity to come speak to your students who may be interested in learning more about the undergraduate programs the College of Architecture has to offer. Our current undergraduate programs include Architecture, Interior Design, and Landscape Architecture. We have chosen to contact you because students who may be interested in a career in design are likely to be enrolled in your visual arts, science, and/or industrial technology courses.
In addition to visiting, we also wanted to let you know that we have two summer workshops for sophomores, juniors, and seniors interested in exploring design majors. These are the Career Explorations Workshop and the Discover Landscape Architecture Camp. Information and applications can be found here: http://architecture.unl.edu/prospective-student/high-school-workshops. Applications for summer workshops are due April 4, 2016.
Friday, October 2, 2015 is our annual Junior/Senior Open House. Students who attend spend the day learning about our programs and campus resources, touring Architecture Hall, having lunch with students and faculty, and participating in a design activity. Students who are interested in attending can register online by September 28, 2015 here: http://admissions.unl.edu/coa-open-house
