DEMYSTIFYING ARTMAKING THROUGH COLLABORATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING IN A DISTANCE LEARNING COURSE

E. Pitri

University of Nicosia (CYPRUS)
In this presentation I will describe issues in, rationales for and practical implications of an attempt to demystify the image of the artist working in the solitary confinement of a studio for self expression. When utilizing the appropriate tools on a distance-learning course platform the instructor can facilitate communication and interaction between students, which lead to processes that cultivate students’ playful attitude and cognitive processes in order to move beyond self-expression towards a collaborative development of big ideas and a solid knowledge base for artmaking, problem finding and problem solving, setting boundaries for artmaking, and meaningful artmaking. Through Moodle, a group of education graduate students specialized in arts and education developed their own artmaking as a meaning-making process and, at the same time, collaborated for meaningful group artmaking that resulted in designing an installation for the interior of the university’s main library.
