Blending practice and theory, the Senior Visual Arts course will prepare you to deliver thoughtful, engaging programming in Visual Arts confidently and creatively. You’ll discuss current pedagogical theory and contemporary issues, with a focus on creating a healthy, inclusive visual arts classroom and supporting socially, environmentally and culturally aware students. You’ll have opportunities to incorporate the creative and critical analysis processes into planning and course design, and you’ll build a resource bank of inspiring themes for students to explore, artist and art historical references, useful apps, engaging art activities, and valuable online resources.
