Art class is designed to facilitate the most creativity. It needs to be an ever-changing, reactive playground of fresh ideas and nurturing instruction. However, many art teachers find that the standardized world works against our creative impulses and threatens to bog our classrooms down in routine and convention. Creativity In Crisis helps you find the way to ensure your classroom is a frenzy of creative activity.
In this course, you’ll learn from creativity experts, including Sir Kenneth Robinson, to dig deep into a true understanding of creativity. You’ll also learn strategies to take into your classroom to enhance creativity and cultivate learners who are prepared for the demands of our ever-changing world.
Participants in Creativity in Crisis will need to purchase a copy of the book Out of our minds: The power of being creative (3rd ed.) by Sir Ken Robinson (2017).
A sample assignment from Week 3 of the class “Creativity in Crisis.”
"Very informative and gives art teachers a lot of evidence to back up the importance of our subject matter. It also creates time for you as an artist to remember to explore your own talents and creativity. It made me remember the commitment that I must make to myself to balance my life as an artist and an art teacher."
"There is such minimal support and courses out there for art teachers. For something like AOE to be available to us and for it to be so ridiculously relevant, is like a dream come true. I could not find a graduate level course in art to satisfy 4 core courses I needed to take in addition to my Masters in Education. Thank you AOE! "
"This class has changed the way I will be teaching my class. The classes you offer are cutting edge and I am looking forward to taking another course in the future!"
