Putting Artists in the Classroom: Intro to Teaching Art

Course No. GEN 400-400A  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Kristin Thompson-Smith

Students will have the opportunity to receive a general introduction to the world of art education. Students will have the opportunity to give back to their community by providing art education to a school that does not have an existing art program. Students will be working with a cooperating classroom teacher in order to have first-hand teaching experience through the creation of the studio arts. Through this process students will be provided with the principles and practices of art education for grades K-8. Students will also be provided with curriculum construction and lesson planning to be used during their teaching of art education. Offered fall and spring.
