Creative Arts in Learning

The Creative Arts in Learning Division programs have earned a far-reaching reputation for their innovative perspectives in the arts and education. Through stimulating courses and hands-on experiences, students discover the power and potential of the arts to reach children and adults in new and effective ways. Students explore arts integration through six arts modalities: creative movement, drama, music, visual art, storytelling, and poetry. The emphasis on dynamic interdisciplinary and critical pedagogy approaches creates a rich learning environment.
