Art Educ&human Devlpment
This course considers human development from early childhood through adolescence through the lens of the artist-teacher. Readings, seminar activities and field visits to PreK-12 classrooms will focus on the role of art in human development and learning guided by theories of multicultural education. Special attention is paid to how art teachers engage youth in studying, critiquing and making visual culture while considering the stages of human development and student¿s diverse identities. Field experiences include brief observations of a range of public school art classrooms and other community art making settings. Introductions to art curriculum development, seminar reflections and classroom discourse are cultivated to respond to student observations about art and human development of learners in multicultural settings.
