Artists & Their Regions is the CCW's signature course. It features seminar-style class meetings and a week-long artists' retreat that gives students and faculty time to focus on their creative projects.
The course is offered each spring to upperclassmen dedicated to honing their craft and developing a specific creative project over the semester.
The Spring 2015 AATR course will be announced soon. For more information about enrolling in Artists & Their Regions, please see the coursebook.
In Spring 2014, the Artists and Their Regions class explored Housotn Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center. Students "shadowed" medical practitioners and enrolled in Volunteer Serivces to learn about the Houston Methodist Hospital Community from the inside.
In Spring 2013, the Artists and Their Regions class read and studied Flannery O'Connor and the American South. During Spring Break, the class traveled to Milledgeville, Georgia, home to the world's largest insane asylum in the 1950s and O'Connor from 1938-1964.
