New for 2018-2019, this is a vibrant community where you are free to explore your interest in the visual and performing arts by expanding and deepening your connection to creativity and expression.
LEARN WHERE YOU LIVE
Students will engage with staff, faculty and artists through weekly formal and informal connections, gallery exhibits, field trips, studio visits, artist workshops, and social gatherings. Our Artist in Residence offers hands-on experiences and explorations through a variety of artistic mediums.
- New first-time, first-year students will enroll in a one-credit Foundations in the Arts seminar designed to build connections among students in the community.
- Current UVM students living in the Arts & Creativity neighborhood will have the option to apply for an enhanced experience. If admitted, they will receive additional benefits, including priority for room selection, special programming options, leadership opportunities, and possibly an option to enroll in a seminar and earn credit. (More information about how to apply for the enhanced experience will be made available in January.)
WHAT TO EXPECT
Students will have a variety of opportunities to develop skills in both the visual and performing arts. Whether it is developing a gallery exhibit, helping design a logo, or performing for our coffee hour, there are many outlets where new experiences and old are cultivated.
For a deeper dive, we invite returning students placed in this learning community to explore these Arts Initiative options.
