Learning about art at a young age can have numerous benefits for students, fostering creativity and imagination, deepening students' cultural, societal and historical awareness, and fostering empathy and respect for different perspectives. The post-impressionist movement was a movement of innovation and experimentation. The artists explored the use of color symbolism, shape and form, complex political and philosophical themes, and new methods of self-expression. This course highlights the importance of innovation, experimentation, and creative problem solving to address complex issues in society. The course is designed to align with the National Core Arts Standards and provides teachers opportunities to develop lessons that they will be able to integrate into all subjects that they teach.

This course is applicable towards the Art in the Classroom Certificate.

Instructor
I believe that teachers are the backbone of society, and that education plays a major role in shaping a culture’s values. I made a career change to education after four years of active duty in the army and two years working in aircraft. For the past 25-30 years, I have had the privilege of teaching in a variety of settings in public and private schools, charter schools, and over half of my career teaching overseas in international settings. My educational interests include integrated curriculum development, art instruction, classroom climate, teacher care, educational technology, and Biblical integration.
