By combining art studio activities with discussions of art as it relates to different time periods and cultures students come to better understand the world of art. Students are organized by cross-age groupings and work with a variety of media to develop their individual art skills. Art Enrichment is a student teacher education program at Kent State University.
Example activities include: drawing, painting (acrylic, tempera, watercolor), printmaking, clay and 3D sculptural materials
About Art Enrichment
Art Enrichment is a hands-on experience and community outreach program offered by the Art Education division at Kent State University.
Each semester, children in grade levels 1 through 6 experience inventive, cutting-edge curriculum provided by our undergraduate students in Art Education. The students in the Teaching Practicum course are responsible for teaching children in our after school Art Enrichment classes. Supervised by Senior Faculty Member, Dr. Koon-Hwee Kan, 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.
