Common Arts Education
with Chris Hall
Monday, June 29th 8:00EST
“And having thus passed the principles of arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, and geography, with a general compact of physics, they may descend in mathematics to the instrumental science of trigonometry, and from thence to set forward all these proceedings in nature and mathematics, what hinders but that they may procure, as oft as shall be needful, the helpful experiences of hunters, fowlers, fishermen, shepherds, gardeners, apothecaries . . . And this will give them such a real tincture of natural knowledge, as they shall never forget, but daily augment with delight.” —John Milton, “Of Education”
Educator and author Chris Hall provides a history of the common arts, identifies its place among the liberal and fine arts, and describes its importance in education for thinkers from Ancient Greece through today. Expounding on his book Common Arts Education: Renewing the Classical Tradition of Training the Hands, Head, and Heart, Chris provides compelling philosophical and theological determination for bringing the liberal arts and common arts together for a whole education.
Join us as Chris Hall unpacks his book Common Arts Education: Renewing the Classical Tradition of Training the Hands, Head, and Heart and check out the accompanying course on ClassicalU coming soon!!
