EDUC-5820: Creative Arts in Education

The creative arts are a powerful tool in the realm of education and for cultivating personal and professional resilience for educators. In this course, we will explore how creative processes can enhance social/emotional learning, academic learning, and community building. Students will do writing and drama exercises in each class meeting, with additional exposure from guest artists in the visual arts, theater, and dance/movement. Students will explore best practices for facilitating creative arts through planning and facilitating an activity of their choice for the other students (designed for the population of their choice). Throughout this course, students will engage in their own creative process as a means of in creating their familiarity and comfort with various mediums and modalities and expanding their understanding of common benefits and challenges when engaging in the creative arts. No experience in the creative arts is necessary, just a willingness to explore.
