Concepts in Art Education (ART 325) is a course I took during the 2016 spring semester.
"The intent of this course is to introduce students to concepts of how artistic learning occurs in children, adolescents, and adults-including special populations. Additionally, students will investigate how these concepts shaped art education practice in the past and how it continues to influence current pedagogical practice. This class is meant to provide a foundation for later course work in art education and K-12 art teaching." (https://csuart325.com)
This class, with its strong focus on concepts and theories for teaching art, allowed me to begin envisioning the type and style of teacher I want to become and the many different ways to structure my classroom.
The Service Learning portion of the class provided an opportunity to work with adult students with disabilities in the art classroom setting. We created our own lesson plans for each session and then reflected on our instruction by documenting each experience with a journal entry and blog post.
