Enjoy a theater production (that can be a live play or even a video presentation) how about renting a broadway musical like LesMiserables, Fiddler on the Roof, Oklahoma, West Side Story, or any musical. This gives both music, literature and theater. Also classical plays that you can find on the internet or CD. Shakespeare for example Many area colleges, community theaters even high schools have theater productions or music concerts and more. Do Not re-tell the story in your essay but tell of your entire Experience in the Arts and then relate to what we have and will study in this course. On the essay – tell me all about the experience. This is NOT a research paper on a topic but a report and personal reaction to an experience. So if you watch a Broadway Musical for example, tell of your reaction to the music, what do the lyrics tell of? What things do you see and experience in the musical ? How about the setting, the story, the theater/drama, who did you see this with? What was their reaction? Etc etc. Tell me the entire experience on anything – sights sounds smells and everything.
Do Not just re-tell the story but tell of your experience (the sounds sights etc plus costumes, music, drama, theater, scenes, staging and everything)
A Broadway musical is a good idea if you cannot travel to visit something actually.
If you are going to a museum, art show, etc call ahead and often the staff will give you special material to help you if you tell them you are doing this for a college class.

Remember to find something that interests you. This is an activity for you to do and experience. Then the essay will tell me about the experience and what you learned in the activity. Tell me of your entire experience including who you do this with, what was your reaction? What did you learn? Then relate to what the textbook has on this as well.

I hope this helps you find an activity here. The essay has to be 1200 words or more as per the assignment instructions. Again tell of your Experience in the Arts in your essay. Don’t just re-tell a story or a trip but what artistic things did you experience. This is an Activity so relate that activity and what you learned and what impacted you the most. What you really liked, What you did not enjoy, and everything. Tell of the building, the event and feelings and emotions. Then who went with you and what did they think. Relate to us all the things that made an impact on you and others.
