Description

How can the expressive arts triage the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and police brutality on Black children and teens living in systemically under-served communities in Washtenaw County? This Engaged Learning course will focus on how the expressive arts are applied as a healing tool in response to the traumas that may have been experienced by school-age youth, whilst recognizing their resilience and strength. Students are offered opportunities to engage with children and youth most likely remotely (details TBD) through an internship with the community-based program, Telling It https://lsa.umich.edu/tellingit *

In class and in community/virtually, students will learn how expressive art forms and artists apply their disciplines using the framework of racially and culturally sensitive and, respectful pedagogy. They will examine the impact of traumatic circumstances and events on the healthy development of the brain and body and their amelioration using age-appropriate methods that are playful, creative and pay attention to healing and social emotional learning.

Course Requirements:

There will be a mandatory half-day training the Saturday following the second class. hrough self-reflection, creative response, and the written and recorded work of arts innovators.
