Arts and the Child: Early Childhood
Fall 2014 quarter
All children enjoy singing, painting, and dancing, yet as we grow up this natural ability becomes suppressed and often lost. This sequence of courses will reach out to the inner child in students and provide opportunities to support children in need of care and education in the community. Lectures, studio arts, research, field trips and volunteer work with children in the community will develop students’ competency as artists, parents, and educators. The course will examine practices of education and self-cultivation from Eastern and Western perspectives. The fall course is designed with a focus on children of preschool age, 0-3 years old. Courses in winter and spring will focus on the elementary years and allow students to pursue further projects.
Credit will be awarded in arts and human development.
