38-6221 Teaching with the Visual Arts


This course is designed to build upon the visual arts knowledge of the teacher candidates, as well as introduce them to engaging practices for facilitating K-12 students’ development of knowledge, skills, and appreciation of the visual arts. Its major components, aesthetics and K-12 education, are reflected in the four major goals of the course: 1) to establish an aesthetic foundation related to art education; 2) to develop new systems for generating concepts that engage analogical thinking; 3) to explore new media methods and techniques for integrating the fine arts into the K-12 curriculum; and 4) to reflect upon and assess field experiences. Activities include the design of lesson plans that address student developmental levels, ages, and special needs. Teacher candidates are required to observe art lessons in K-12 classroom settings in order to extend their understanding about ways to teach the visual arts.
