ART 350 - Art Education Methods and Materials

An interdisciplinary, pre-practicum course that explores the methods, content and process in art education. Students will gain skills in multiple mediums for a variety of teaching environments, while developing lesson plans and curriculum for both elementary and secondary level teaching. Current research and issues in Art Education will be examined as well as the exploration and application of the Massachusetts Frameworks for the Arts and Professional Teaching Standards. Through weekly pre-practicum field experience (total of 75 hrs.), students will have an opportunity to observe and implement (at the cooperating Teacher’s discretion), student designed learning experiences based on “best practice”. Through discussions, readings, reflections and personal art-making, students will develop individual creative strategies for successful art education experiences.
