ARTS & DESIGN
Arts & Design Courses help students develop and hone the technical and aesthetic skills to communicate their message through performance, visual, audio, and digital media. “The arts are core to the human experience, and therefore to the study of human ecology,” says Dru Colbert, one of COA’s arts faculty. “On one hand, the highest expression of any person comes through the arts. On the other, the arts encourage students to consider the world in new and exciting ways.”
All studio courses are problem and project centered. Our faculty guide students through exercises and projects that develop technical and creative skills. Courses emphasize the inter-relationship of all expressive media, with faculty brought to COA for the diversity of their skills, working media, and aesthetic viewpoints. Tutorials and independent studies allow students to pursue their creative endeavors in an individualized manner while finding media combinations that best articulate their voices and visions. While you will find most of the courses COA offers in this publication there are more to be found online. Please check out www.coa.edu to see the most up-to-date course offerings.
