Creative Arts K-6 - EDMT5530

Year - 2018

This unit comprises four Creative Arts components: Drama, Visual Arts, Music and Dance. It combines both theoretical and practical/studio work across a range of art forms appropriate for K - 6 classrooms. The unit provides students with an understanding of the importance of the Arts both as powerful learning and teaching strategies across the primary curriculum and as creative arts in their own right. Given the experiential nature of this unit, attendance at both lectures and workshops is mandatory.
