A key to fully appreciate art is understanding the creative journey and the underlying creative critical thinking which leads to the “message and meaning” of the piece.
Honors students are given the option of completing an individual or small group creative project to fulfill their honors enrichment plan.
Students select a specific movement/genre/medium/artist for their exploration (short film, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, musical composition, musical performance, creative writing, dance, drama performance, culinary, etc.). After their proposal is accepted and modified if needed the student journals their creative process (including photos and video clips).
The student presents their ‘finished’ piece to the class in digital or physical format providing an overview of their creative journey. The culmination of the project is the submission in Canvas of the complete journals, final product, and detailed reflective statement on how the project specifically relates to the course content and outcomes.
