Creativity-Infused Pedagogy to Foster a Civic Consciousness
By Carol-lynn Swol, Project Associate, Association of American Colleges and Universities
Art and design curricula empower students to be thoughtful and engaged with society. The creative process, course assignments, and studio practices help cultivate students’ ability to explore civic dimensions through their message, craftsmanship, and materials. The act of creating art in their classes not only nurtures creativity and communication skills but also gives students a way to reflect on and express compelling ideas that have social impact, and it fosters the courage and resilience to put those ideas into the public realm.
