Teaching English through the creative arts is not only a proven pedagogical approach to reinforce language skills, but also an impactful strategy to foster multicultural awareness, global mindedness, and inspire lifelong learning. In this presentation, we will survey a dynamic selection of successful English language creative arts projects ranging from classroom assignments to multinational collaborations and large-scale public events involving hundreds of participants from numerous countries. These scalable examples show how English teachers of all levels can use creative writing, visual arts, multimedia projects, and everyday technology to build students’ language skills and meet learning objectives through student-centered instruction and project-based learning. Additionally, it shows how these English language creative arts projects develop a wide range of transferable skills and critical thinking tools which students can apply to their future academic and professional lives.
