What can an artist bring to work in the classroom?
Are there creative strategies that can be applied to both teaching and learning when making artwork?
Do artistic practice and teaching share a common language? Can creative approaches span both spaces?
This course will help you to answer these questions by exploring the relationship and interaction between teaching and creativity, education and artistic practice.
Drawing on case studies by artists and teachers working in the field you will explore creative possibilities. You will also experience lectures from academics in the Creative Education department at the University for the Creative Arts to apply to your own context.
This course will take you on a journey, discussing and dissecting theories and practices with your peers. Through a personal journal you’ll be encouraged to reflect on your own journey and apply what you’ve learnt to your own context.
There is something here for everyone, as an artist, teacher, teaching assistant, gallery/museum educator, student or anything else in between. No prior knowledge or experience is needed, this course will give you all that.
So if you are interested in exploring the opportunities that creative approaches within learning/teaching can offer, have a look below, join us today.
