Spring Semester 2018

GNS 285 – Exploring Music and Visual Arts

In this course, students will explore two disciplines of the Fine Arts: music and visual art. A primary goal of the course is to encourage students to engage in creating artistic works. To facilitate this, students will spend a significant portion of course time exploring different artistic media and techniques through hands-on exercises and the completion of a personal creative project. Additionally, students will examine the relationship between theology and the arts, and consider how their Christian faith motivates and shapes their creative process.

Taught by Erin Nordquist

April 23- 27
