Arts and Human Development

Arts and Human Development

The CTL teaching grant project has made it possible for the core course of the Arts and Education Program to be re-designed as a service learning course that benefits 1) children in after-school programs in Geneva, and 2) undergraduate and MAT students in AEP 335/535, The Arts and Human Development. Professor Davenport’s re-design is two-pronged: focused on collaborative learning, of both groups of students (big and small), through arts lessons and experiences that emphasize undirected composition and creative arts production around developmental themes. First, inspired by a class trip to ARTISAN works, a unique gallery in Rochester, the college students explored representations or symbols of their own learning trajectory into adulthood and created artwork to share with one another. Second, each college student mentored 2-3 children in an after school program and facilitated the generation of artwork.
