CS 4520 - Art and Healing

ing aspects of art across cultures and throughout history, allows students to choose the type of art they would like focus (e.g., visual art, writing, music, humor, dance, drama, poetry, film, and the creative arts therapies). It will expand students' capacities to perceive, benefit from, and transmit the healing aspects of art by bringing its dynamics more fully into conscious awareness. Through examining the universality of archetypes, the empowering experiences of diverse artists using creativity as a form of resilience, and the effectiveness of a variety of arts as multicultural healing modalities, students will come to understand more fully how art is integral to the human quest for wholeness. 3 credit(s)
