Art teachers are unique in so many ways. From the manner in which we design and use classroom spaces, to how we facilitate interactions with students and colleagues, we bring a unique and creative lens to the table. When it comes to something like writing curricula, we are often empowered to design our own, and for most of us, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Yet, that freedom comes with its own set of challenges. Like staring at a blank canvas, knowing where to start, can often be a struggle.
Designing art curricula involves a series of decisions. This includes establishing program goals, time for significant research and planning, and giving yourself permission to experiment with new ideas. In this course, you will look deeply at curricular approaches in the field of art education and explore real art curricula samples from across the globe. In the end, the result will be a personalized curriculum you will be excited to implement because it is specifically aligned to support your students and your teaching style.
A sample assignment from Week 1 of the class "Designing Your Art Curriculum."
"This course helped my get organized with my art program. Through discussion board postings and collaboration from other students, I was able to learn new perspectives in art education and new strategies. This was a great experience and I learned more in this class about art education and curriculums then in my undergrad and grad school together."
"This was honestly the most useful graduate course I think I've ever taken. What we did was so relevant, useful, and not available anywhere else. I wish my whole department would be able take this course. Thanks so much for offering it!"
"I took this class just to help me re-think my teaching. I have been teaching quite a while and although I feel that I am a seasoned teacher, I learned so much. Everyone should take time to re-evaluate their program and this class does such a good job in guiding you through the process."
