Course Review

Joseph Blotz, Pastor

For me, the highlight of this course was the artist interviews... individuals reflecting on their lives and art, provoking creativity, empathy, and compassion. I appreciated hearing from artists I had long admired and artists I was newly introduced to... thank you!

  • identify how the arts cultivate wonder and curiosity,
  • recognize how healthy curiosity can lead to transformation,
  • discern precursors to empathy,
  • foster wonderment through use of the arts,
  • facilitate artistic space for global curiosity, and
  • foster compassion in communities and groups using the arts.
