ARTE 220 Learning in the Visual Arts [GEKA]


This course is designed for students who are interested in developing visual art approaches for teaching, learning, and developing 21st-century skills. Students will be introduced to concepts and methods that will enable them to 1) create personally meaningful works of art; 2) use interpreting art strategies to observe and connect with works of art, and 3) engage youth and adult populations in visual arts-based activities that enrich learning and human interactions. Teacher candidates will develop the basic skills to meaningfully integrate the visual arts across the elementary school curricula by learning approaches to guide K-12 students to 1) create images that express their own views, 2) interpret images from diverse artistic traditions that address important life issues across time and place, and to 3) explore the differences and the commonalities that the visual arts share with other art disciplines, the humanities, and the sciences.

Rationale for Knowledge of the Disciplines - Teacher candidates will develop the basic skills to meaningfully integrate the visual arts across the elementary school curricula by learning approaches to guide K-12 students to 1) create images that express their own views, 2) interpret images from diverse artistic traditions that address important life issues across time and place, and to 3) explore the differences and the commonalities that the visual arts share with other art disciplines, the humanities, and the sciences. ARTE 220 meets the Arts Requirement in the Knowledge of the Disciplines because students in this course are introduced to basic knowledge and skills in the visual arts including the field’s historical development, intellectual methods, and the visual arts’ unique characteristics and tools for communicating about life’s important concerns and experiences through visual images and objects.
