ARTP 120 Art and Global Culture: Performing Art

3 hours

This interdisciplinary, core curriculum course centers its intellectual and artistic queries around the enduring question, “How do the arts reveal God’s love for beauty, empathy and creativity across global boundaries?” Using the framework of the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-10), students will explore how global cultures both celebrate and critique their communities through the artistic disciplines of art, music and theatre. Throughout the course, students will cross boundaries of difference to investigate how God’s creative spirit manifests itself in artistic expressions of beauty, dissonance and the celebration of the human spirit.
