Perspectives

Creative Arts (CA)

The creative arts perspective focuses on how people use their skills and imagination to express themselves creatively. In CA courses, you will examine the methods and materials used in various kinds of art—performances, written works, visual pieces, and structures. You will gain an understanding of theoretical, social, political, economic, and historical contexts surrounding works of art. CA courses will give you an understanding of how creativity comes to life through art, and how creative works can evoke emotions, provoke thoughts, or guide actions and beliefs.
