Unique Summer Course Spotlights:

ART 342 - Summer Book Arts Workshop

A week-long program that explores the skills and techniques of creating artist's books. Through daily workshops, students will create their own artist's book which will be displayed at the Book Arts Exhibition from September 9 - October 27. The course concludes with a final lecture and reception on September 13.

MUE 595 - First Steps in Music

First Steps in Music is a music pedagogy rooted in research, folk literature, and practical experience. It is a fun, engaging, and research-based pedagogy that aligns with our National Standards and is centered in early childhood and primary general music instruction. Participants will safely engage in singing, dancing, playing, and movement activities that lead to immediate take-aways to the classroom. This pedagogy is flexible in that it should evolve differently in each classroom, dependent on who and where the participant teaches. This pedagogy is taught through a culturally responsive and relevant lens. This course leads to official certification. Online teaching considerations also will be discussed.
