Course Code: VU22VA2J

Availability: Enrolment is closed

This facilitated online course includes some mandatory synchronous sessions with real-time group interaction set by the Instructor. Audio and video recordings may be a required element of the learning.

The Visual Arts Part 2 AQ Course extends candidates’ exploration of theoretical and practical ideas related to teaching at the elementary and secondary levels. It focuses on the creation of study-unit planning in drawing, painting, mixed media, ceramics, sculpture, photography and digital media within a context of social justice and culturally relevant pedagogy.

Through exploration of the elements and principles of design and post-modern principles of possibility using a variety of media, candidates connect professional practice to the developmental stages of students’ art and learn to use a variety of authentic assessment strategies. Candidates also learn through art appreciation, history, aesthetics, and criticism, which are embedded in the course curriculum. Hands-on workshops expand understanding and skill with visual-arts techniques and experiences, thus increasing candidates’ confidence and ability to deliver appropriate, challenging studio activities to meet curriculum policies and standards while addressing Issues of safety and liability.
