At the Crossroads: General Education and Student Success, 53rd Annual National Conference of the Association for Liberal and General Education
The role of the visual and performing arts in humanities studies in general education is well documented. However, these humanistic art studies often focus upon arts appreciation rather than active art-making and creative skills required to be engaged as an artist participant. This session will present an overview of the role of expressive “art-making” in general education curricula of mid-western universities. In addition, a qualitative analysis of various examples and art-making outcomes will be highlighted.
