Creative Expressions
Students may take for general education credit up to 3 courses in the Creative Expressions category, at least one of which must be a studio course or equivalent.

Definition

Students learn about a creative art form through both theory and practice. They develop an aesthetic appreciation of formal elements, the ability to evaluate art from a variety of perspectives, and they experience art through their own creations. These courses are in the areas of fine arts, performing arts, creative writing, and literature and help students explore art as a process of production, reflection, critique, revision, and presentation.

Intended Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of a Creative Expressions studio course, students will

1. be able to appreciate, understand, and evaluate aesthetic expression;
2. have developed skills relevant to the discipline and understand how it is practiced professionally;
3. have produced original artistic expression modeled on professional practice.

Upon completion of a Creative Expressions non-studio course, students will

1. be able to appreciate, understand, and evaluate aesthetic expression;
2. understand how the discipline is practiced professionally, from process to production.
