Students will also explore theoretical, sociological, psychological and political constructs of, and approaches to creativity and how they apply to their own developing creative capacities. This unit engages arts and artmakers by exploring performances and the creative processes behind those performances. The assessment tasks also allow students to make their own creative pieces.
