HLC604: Self Discovery through the Expressive and Creative Arts

3 Credit(s)


This course is designed to provide students with experiential opportunities for creative self-discovery using various integrated expressive arts modalities, focusing primarily on image-making and visual arts. In addition, it offers discussion segments that explore the importance for our time and culture of engaging our connection to our own individual creativity and inner wisdom, and the effect doing this can have on the growth of personal as well as collective consciousness. One key premise of the course is that each of us is born creative and that being creative is the nature of being alive. Another key premise is that, in order to be effective in integrating the use of art, creativity and image-making in any educational, therapeutic, business or other professional setting, it is critical to explore one’s own personal creative process, development, and style. Accordingly, the principal emphasis of the course is on individual work using personal process, in-class discussions, outside assignments and an independently designed project to develop a self-discovery creative/visual journal.  This course is offered in a blended format, involving weekend experiential intensives along with guided study time for personal and professional integration.
