“Backpacking Art” – Heath Pierson
The Art Installation Backpacking Trip I designed incorporated my disciplines: Fine Art and Outdoor Adventure Leadership. This trip was meant to help students to think creatively while reconnecting to the land. In addition, I employed my skills as a Teaching Assistant in Rick Parsons sculpture class. I was able to help students with technical issues and fully develop the concepts for their work. I created this video as a culminating project to show the community the power of integrating Art and ODAL.
