5382 - Applied Arts
(3 graduate credits)
After completing this course, students will be able to work with a local community to catalyze the creation of new vernacular Scripture-based and community-development messages in indigenous forms of artistic communication. They will be able to encourage sustainability by helping integrate these expressions into local community life; designing interactive, dialogue-based learning activities for arts-discovery and arts-creation workshops; mentoring local artists; promoting the dissemination of indigenous Christian works; and encouraging the positive self-identity that these forms may engender.
