IDS140.01 Creativity Across the Disciplines 3 Campus TR 12:30-1:150 pm

Writing, music, graphic arts, performance, and technology all share the creative spirit. In this class we work both independently and in teams on creative projects. We study how the mind makes beauty, stimulates fresh thought, and expresses freedom. A benefit is the opportunity to share work with a wider audience through publication, exhibition, or performance, and to receive valuable feedback to improve our creativity.

This is a great course for a student who wants the freedom to experiment and the opportunity to work with creative minds in many areas of expertise.
