COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Humanities seen through various forms of expression: The arts and society, such as dance, painting, music, sculpture, and mythology; theory and practice in artistic creation to stimulate personal awareness.

We will explore “art” as a form of “deep play” and “performance” in our everyday lives. Through fun lectures, games, films, discussions, workshops, and multi-sensory projects, we will examine several forms of human creativity that individuals and groups around the world use to engage and entertain one another on an aesthetic level: e.g., language, storytelling, folklore, literature, humor, games, memorials, architecture, rituals, poetry, songs, foodways, fashion, film, and technology.
