Anyone hoping to enhance or discover their creative talent can choose from among numerous theatre, dance, music and art classes that are available for the spring semester.


Playwriting (THEA 2990) is a three credit hour class where students explore dramatic structure through reading and various writing exercises. The goal of the class is to create at least one ten-minute play that can be submitted for production to various theatre companies all over the world, some of which offer cash prizes.  Opportunities also exist to have plays produced locally through the Chattanooga State Theatre Program and/or Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga.


Drawing I (ARTP 1010) is a four credit hour class where students learn the basics of drawing.  Line and value studies with a variety of media, placing emphasis on observation and accurate spatial and proportionate rendering are explored. The human figure, still-life objects and landscape are studied.

Photography and Darkroom I (ARTP 2410) is another four credit hour class. Students learn about the basics of photography through darkroom techniques and oral critiques.  Students will have hands-on experience with black and white photography and printing, while exploring the fine art of image, personal symbolism, avant-garde composition, and photographs as art statements. 

Classes begin at Chattanooga State on January 17.
