This survey-style class will cover how literature, art, performing arts, and music have been influenced by our history. We will discuss the theories of creativity and why people have an innate desire to create and be remembered. We will discuss and debate a lot!
Students will explore the creations and styles of great artists, musicians, composers, and performing artists and will be encouraged to form their own opinion of the creations and creators that we study.
I will give weekly homework, and a test for each unit studied. Students will finish the year with a creative project.
Students and parents will receive a Syllabus and class calendar before the first class meeting.
