Contemporary Issues in Art Education (2 credits; fall semester)
CFA AR 559
Conceptual frameworks, content, and pedagogical strategies derived from the art world, critical theory, and the fields of art education and education writ large form the basis, in this course, for theoretical and studio inquiry. A thematic approach is used to consider significant social issues such as personal identity, culture and the popular media, the environment, aging, race, gender, ethnicity and social justice narratives that surround these issues. Students research artists from the contemporary mainstream and the hiddenstream, and use their life stories and work as a basis for planning the delivery of pre-K/ 12 studio teaching.
