Three Performers Explore the Future of Arts Education in America’s Schools during “The Creative Journey” – Dec. 6

FT. LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – In recent years, research has shown how vital the arts are to helping students develop critical thinking, better reading and math skills, and verbal communication. Incorporating art into regular classroom activities can engage and excite students, better preparing them to learn.

And a new generation of up-and-coming educators is finding ways to integrate art into all aspects of learning. Join three of Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Fischler School of Education and Human Services Interdisciplinary Arts Program students on Sunday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. to experience “The Creative Journey” and see first-hand the power art has to transform a student’s learning experience.

Through the Interdisciplinary Arts Program (IAP), graduate students Antonia Martinez, Kenyarda Scott, and Patrick Sammon have further developed their talents and loves for their respective fields. The arts education paths they’ve chosen will be highlighted during “The Creative Journey” through drama, music, and audio and visual elements.

Under the direction of David Spangler, Ph.D., Norman Fedder, Ph.D., and the whole IAP instructional team, this production will serve as a capstone for the three educational artists, which is the equivalent of a Masters’ thesis.

In keeping with the spirit of encouraging others to forge their own paths to higher learning, eligible fellow artists and educators who hold undergraduate degrees in various areas of education, arts, and technology are also invited to learn about the IAP program.

“The Creative Journey” will be presented at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 6 in the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center, on NSU’s main campus, at 3301 College Ave. in Davie.

Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 the night of the show, and will be available by phone, online, and at the box office 30 minutes prior to the show. Tickets are available by calling 1-954-462-0222 or visiting the Miniaci Performing Arts Center website.
