Expressive Arts

The goal of this focal study is to develop the skills to create within the languages of poetry, music, movement, and/or visual design to convey ideas, knowledge, emotion and experiences clearly and imaginatively. Skills include the knowledge and application of the basic structures, form, composition, and interpretive parameters within each language but also relevant connections between them.
