EDU204IA – Creative Arts and Lifelong Learning Dual Credit
EDU204 explores how dance, drama, music, and the visual arts provide ways of learning and inquiry. It is designed to provide students with creative arts content, skills, and understandings that they will use to guide their creative endeavors as lifelong learners. It reviews theoretical aspects and the origins of creative processes that explain how we explore, inquire and document the human experience. Through a variety of course activities students will investigate the elements, processes, terminology, and methodologies of the creative arts, the nature of the unique perspectives offered by the creative arts, as well as the ways in which they integrate with our social and physical worlds.
“The arts are about the qualities of human experiences. Through music, dance, visual arts, drama, and the rest, we give form to our feelings and thoughts about ourselves, and how we experience the world around us. Learning in and about the arts is essential to intellectual development. The arts illustrate the diversity of intelligence and provide practical ways of promoting it. The arts are among the most vivid expressions of human culture. To understand the experience of other cultures, we need to engage with their music, visual art, dance, and verbal and performing arts. Music and images, poems and plays are manifestations of our deepest talents and passions. Engaging with the arts of others is the most vibrant way of seeing and feeling the world as they do.”
