ART 221 Art Education in the Schools (4 credits)
Certain qualified students will be invited to take part in a supervised practicum, teaching at a local grammar school. In this course there will be lectures in methods of teaching, followed by an eight-week intensive experience of working with a partner, team-teaching a group of fifteen primary school students. While this is being done, the students will keep a weekly diary from which they will construct a ten-page term paper on the meaning of the experience. This is a service learning course.
This course may count as a GEP course if taken in conjunction with an Introductory Studio (studio, drawing, painting, 3D, ceramics, traditional or digital photography.
