Discovering the Arts in the Liberal Arts
The Liberal Arts faculty features a number of professional teaching artists who offer studios in visual arts and social dance and workshops in poetry, creative writing, and drama. These courses are designed to be supportive environments where students can apply the various skills in artistic expression that they have already developed in the course of their musical studies. By attaining a deeper level of understanding of another art form, students often find that these studios and workshops can help them see their way back in to their musical studies with even greater insight. At the end of the fall and spring semesters, the Liberal Arts department holds Creative Arts events that celebrate student work in theatre, visual arts, and poetry.
