How can the arts affect change?  In this class we will take a look at how various social issues and cultural/community perspectives are reflected through various art forms – Theatre, Dance, Music, Film, Writing, Visual Arts – and spend time playing and practicing those art forms.  Through the lens of making art, we will explore the “freshman experience” at Appalachian as well as our relationship to the global community.  Our culminating project will be a multimedia arts exploration of local and global community.  This class might appeal to those with an interest in the arts (performing and visual), sociology, social justice, education and sustainable development.

Art is not merely contemplation, it is also action, and all action changes the world, at least a little.  ~ Tony Kushner

Note: Enrollment is restricted to members of the Art Haus residential learning community.
