This class will explore the role that movement, visual art, theater, music, and media can play in problem solving, social justice, and in the resolution of internalized fear, conflicts, or blocks. Through a variety of hands-on activities, field trips, readings, films/video, and guest speakers, students will discover sources of imagery, sound, and movement as tools to awaken their creative problem solving from two perspectives—as creator and viewer. Students interested in human services, social sciences, social justice, media, humanities and education will find this course engaging. This course does not require any prerequisite art classes or training. Students may attend either day or evening sessions; first, second or full sessions for 8 or 16 credits accordingly. Students wanting 12 credits full session will negotiate with the faculty on course requirements.
