For students with a solid grounding in studio art and art history, this course serves as a starting point for the study of pedagogy and educational practice. An intensive class reading of the core literature of the field introduces major historical and contemporary concepts of learning, perception and artistic experience that comprise the framework for diverse approaches to art education schools, museums and alternative settings today. During visits to art education venues around the metropolitan area, members of the class learn to discover the underlying goals and approaches imbedded in excellent art education programs, and will critique the advantages and disadvantages of contrasting methods for differing learners and situations. Integrating theory and praxis, this course establishes critical skills for the four main domains of art education: Interpretation/Meaning-making, Criticism/Aesthetic Discernment, Studio/Production and Historical Understanding. Students plan and carry-out a variety of original educational exercises. Enrollment restricted to 1st year MAT students.
