Managing the Art Room

An effectively managed art room is within reach; learn how to construct a complete classroom management action plan to put to immediate use in your teaching practice.

Managing the art room is so much more than organizing supplies. Well-developed and consistent procedures lay the foundation for building strong relationships with students and supporting a positive learning environment.

Participants will examine and apply current research in classroom management strategies to their art teaching practice. Reflecting on current practice, they will expand their understanding and embark on new methods to promote learning in the classroom. Course participants will examine the formation of social identities and their influence on students’ interactions with content and others. Participants will develop a complete classroom management action plan for immediate implementation in the art room.
