Creative Arts 

The Arts and Creative Thinking: Today's society seeks innovators, problem solvers, and those who "think outside of the box". How do we develop this ability in ourselves and in today's students? Explore the arts as an avenue not just for personal expression, but to increase our capacity for creative thought.
speaker: Amy Parks
  Music as Social Commentary: As with any art form, music necessarily reflects the world in which it is created. Some of the greatest music ever written draws its power from its insight into our society. Examine examples of such pieces and discuss their importance, from Beethoven to the present day.

  Music as Healing: What does Music do to "Heal the Savage Beast"? How do experiences in Music - both listening and participating - make a difference in our physical, mental and emotional well-being?
