Program Information

(15 credits)

The community arts minor introduces students to the field of socially engaged art practices, and is designed for students interested in merging social activism, creative work, performance, teaching and community development. Students will learn how to identify, approach and construct classes for community sites, including youth organizations, schools and afterschool programs, as well as institution serving other populations through the arts in a community setting. Students in the minor examine the processes of creative thinking, community involvement, collaborative enterprise, research, and education in community arts. Students in the community arts minor explore training in at least two different arts disciplines, and develop their learning through service learning experiences in a supervised practicum pursuing their own art projects in the community.
