Creative Arts & Community
Creative Arts & Community is a fine arts course specifically designed for the “non-artist”. Emphasis is placed on an individual’s ability to perceive experience and appreciate the complexity and beauty of the visual and performing arts in direct relation to the origins of human imagination and creativity and its contemporary construction within a democratic society. This course explores our sense of identity, creativity and the language of visual culture through six basic creative arts modalities: visual arts, music, movement, drama, poetry and storytelling. Essentially, through experiential, authentic learning opportunities and critical inquiry, students examine, construct and discover the power of the creative arts as it pertains to oneself, community and culture/society.
