AE5050 - Elementary Methods and Materials in Art Education

Credits: 3
This course is repeatable.

This course will provide the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of the correlative roles of children’s holistic learning, artistic growth, and development, which will provide the foundation for the study and application of constructivist and learner-centered approaches to instructional planning and dialogic pedagogy applied to art education. Study will encompass content of undergraduate courses AE 2000 and AE 3050, and extend to an applied research project and expanded theoretical reading in art education. Readings, research, discussion, studio production, and classroom observations will provide the framework for the study of art education as a discipline incorporating studio production, aesthetics, art history, and criticism. Art materials health and safety regulations will be examined. A 20-hour school observation component is required. Offered Fall term only.
