Arts and the Child: Early Childhood
Fall 2017 quarter
All children enjoy singing, painting, and dancing. Yet, as we grow up, this natural ability becomes suppressed and often lost. This course 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 also examine practices of education and self-cultivation from Eastern and Western perspectives. Our study will focus on children of preschool age, 0-6 years old and early grades, 1-3rd grade.
Credit will be awarded in arts and human development.
