What is the course about?

Young people have their own fashion, belief, slang, dialect, music, comic and behaviour that can be subversive to the convention yet at the same time innovative, creative and non-prototype. A thorough investigation of the youth aesthetics will give new insights to creativity and the visual arts. This practice-based course will introduce various forms of creation within youth culture, including graffiti, popular image, fashion, YouTube, animation, comic in art and so on. Creative skills such as creative thinking, problem-solving for protests; theories such as the culture of kidult and fans will be taught.
