ASC 210 - The Creative Christian

(3) This course is a required component of the semester-long Australia Studies Centre study abroad program at Wesley Institute, a College of the Arts and Theology in Sydney, Australia. This course is part of a series of five that explore integrative issues for the Christian artist. The Creative Christian lays a foundation for thinking and acting creatively in the context of and from the basis of Christian theology. It is presented through lectures, class discussion, guided reading, class presentations and written reflection. In this course, students will have opportunity to converse with others about their art and its theological undergirdings and orientation and to demonstrate an awareness of the problems for Christian practitioners of the arts and ministry in dealing with concepts of creativity, imagination, the mind and the senses. It is the intent that students be able to reflect on their own growth as theologian and artist. Part of the assessment of this course will involve a group presentation of a piece or work concerning a topic of theological interest to the small group. It may be presented in any suitable form, such as debate, drama, quiz show, mock wedding, expert panel, current affairs program, musical composition. Enrollment is limited to students admitted to the semester-long Australia Studies Centre study abroad program.
