Course Outline:

CTP1703: “Creative Arts Through Masterpiece Appreciation” is a studio art-based workshop for children to have first-hand experiences to explore the methods and styles of the classical masterpiece artists. Through masterpiece appreciation, children’s artistic creativity will be enhanced by expressing their ideas or thoughts out of the boundary.

CTP1704: Nowadays, children can take videos, upload them onto the web and share to the social networking platforms with ease. Video arts become a very good way for them to interweave all their abilities and skills together in an art project non-verbally. All in all, it is essential that a product be produced and that the product or performance be presented to an appropriate audience, either students in the class or outside groups (Renzulli & Reis, 1994; 1997).
