To provide some examples:

Courses that present concepts might explore topics address 

ways of looking or thinking about art /focuses such as feminist thought, performance art, etc.

Alternatively, courses that

We want to add here that this radically inclusive pedagogical framework is specifically structured  to encourage and provide
opportunities for individuals who come from non-institutional, non-traditional, informal or autodidactic
(self-taught)  artistic backgrounds.

Stipend Amount: $75/workshop
Open to the same artistically expansive and facilitator-defined content as course offerings, supplementary workshops provide additional opportunities for artists to get involved with the
skool as a teaching-artist.
 
Supported by stipends reflective of each commitment option, workshops offer 1-day opportunity for artists to publicly present, explore or develop a specific area of their work, craft, or practice.
   
 
 
**If you are someone who is interested in contributing to the skool in this way, but doesn't have enough material for a more intensive course offering, facilitating a workshop instead would be perfect fit for you!

Empowered by the collective knowledge of all the free skools that have come before us, we want take a moment to call attention to our gratitude for that rich history of collective and organized labor. In naming this, we also want to mutually recognize the power that collaborative learning spaces hold in the face of the deeply inequitable landscape that academia and its institutions upholds. We hope, by fostering this equity-centered alternative to the same pursuits, we can continue the necessary tradition of providing radically critical and liberated capable of shifting us all toward more inclusive pedagogy and communities of learners.
