  • 3 credits
  • Online

ART 327 is designed to give students a broad view of art in the context of community education and help them connect concepts in art education with other content/curricular areas, with children, and with exceptional populations. A variety of assessments will be used that integrate traditional worksheets, web resource explorations, book abstract and short writings in response to journal articles, and multimedia assignments allowing students to express learning in the form of visual artifacts (artmaking).

Weekly modules include:

• General overview, history of art education and role of art
• Child development and art
• Exceptionalities
• Integration
• Arts define community
• Arts advocacy
• Reflections and final projects (book abstract and final visual journal)
