ARE6933 Art Education Beyond School Walls (Elective)

Students complete field research at an alternative art education site. They observe and document the physical environment, classes and other activities; and conduct interviews with educators, students and administrators. Students then prepare a descriptive case study and presentation, using media creatively, for sharing with their instructor and peers.

ARE6933 Thinking in Art Education (Elective)

One way to boost creative and critical thinking is by cultivating observational skills—moving between convergent and divergent thinking for problem solving. In this exercise, students conduct visual research outdoors, using a camera to find and record a theme. They reflect on their findings to develop lessons that will help learners increase their awareness, find patterns, and become open to the new. Students in this course share their research using a creative presentation platform.
