This course is an elective addition to complete the Art Education degree program's sequence focusing on major phases of visual and aesthetic learning throughout life. This course covers the theory and practice of art pedagogy for transitional young adults, whether in formal college programs or informal circumstances. We cover widely varying developmental benchmarks in this cohort, both individuals with extensive art training and those without prior exposure, in terms of creativity, interaction with the social environment, self-understanding and expression, and technical skill. For many emergent adults, the completion of schooling and greater independence presents the first opportunity to explore artistic experience, or to do so in a self-directed environment. Emphasis is on organized learning experiences in art production, with additional attention to the important outlets for self-guided and independent art experiences at this age. At times this course may be cross-tallied at the graduate level as CED 6005. Additional work required for graduate level credit is outlined in the course syllabus.
