ART 3022 - Art Education: Birth Through Six-Making Sense of the World (3)

When Offered: Fall; Spring.
Focusing on the child, ages birth through six, this course is based on a theory of visual culture: the questioning of developmental stages, the image of the child as a cultural convention, personal narrative, meaningful art practice, and recognizing art as a dialogue between individuals and culture. Readings, written responses, discussions will be based on what we know collectively about the growth and development of the young child, good teaching practice, and critical pedagogy. The class will offer studio experiences, observations and teaching experiences. Students will design and implement a case study. Lecture two hours per week, studio two hours per week, plus observations and teaching experiences outside of class time are required.
Prerequisites: Declared Child Development major or permission of instructor.
