Practicum (Art Enrichment)
Students in the Art Education: Practicum course are responsible for teaching children, ages 4-13 in our after school Art Enrichment classes on campus. Working with fellow pre-service teachers, students plan a comprehensive unit of art study and studio mastery for an assigned age group. The lessons follow a primary unit theme set by the instructor for the semester and a secondary theme developed with teammates for each set of required lesson plans. Individually each student plans three lessons that engage children in looking at art, intelligently talking about art, learning art skills, and creating art. The culminating activity is an art show featuring all the artwork created for family and friends to enjoy.
The Spring 2018 theme is COMMUNITY.
For eight weeks on Monday or Wednesday, Art Enrichment for Young People ages 4-14, students will engage in a visual quest to explore their community identity and document how they rekindle the Spirit of Community.
