Express Yourself with Expressive Arts
At Mount Aloysius, artists have the opportunity to take classes in a variety of mediums as well as to participate in the unique Expressive Arts for Healing classes.
Expressive Arts for Healing is a series of three classes that focus on community outreach. In these courses, students learn to use a variety of processes and modalities (such as drawing, movement, sound, play/drama, storytelling, poetry, and writing/journaling) to complement and enhance the healing process. Students have the opportunity to work with community members at sites utilizing art as part of the healing process.
Students can also take general art classes to express their creativity. Art classes offered in the past include ceramics, drawing, painting, Survey of Art, and more.
You can pair any major with a minor in art or art therapy!
Take the Spotlight On (or Behind!) Stage
Whether you were born to be in the spotlight, or you enjoy the fast-paced tasks backstage, you’ll fit in with the Mount Aloysius Theatre Department. The department typically performs at least two shows a year (often a musical and a play), and all are welcome to participate regardless of experience or skill. Students can participate in theatre as:
- Actors and/or singers
- Scenic, costume, sound, and lighting design
- Backstage run crew
- Stage management
- Poster and program design
English majors can declare a concentration in theatre, and any major can support a theatre minor!
