SC & the Arts: Creating a Diverse, Unique Heritage


This ETV LEARN course for 20 renewal credits is designed to enhance our knowledge of the relationship between South Carolina history and the arts - all of which have helped create a diverse and unique heritage. Home to a wealth of artists in all genres, architecturally interesting places, and dynamic folk traditions, our state, geographically and culturally diverse, has been shaped by the arts throughout our history. To quote Oscar Wilde: “Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.” History and the arts are linked. Art often reflects history by exhibiting how people wished to express themselves – their ideas and emotions. And the arts – all genres of writing, visual arts and performing arts - are all important to the development of our society. This PD course highlights people and historical sites, plus explores related online resources that teachers of all subjects/grades can integrate to enhance lessons. Through learning more about history and the arts, students grow their knowledge of our past to enable them to appreciate and enjoy the present and look to preserve our heritage to pass to the future. (Recommended for teachers of all grade levels and subject areas.)

This course is approved by the SC Department of Education for teachers holding SC teaching licenses to earn 20 renewal credits.
