Art and the Child

This service learning initiative will provide and inspire Elementary Education majors in the “Art and the Child” course to be facilitators of active and hands on learning for diverse and inclusive communities. This initiative will enable students to analyze and reflect on the service learning experience as well as provide opportunities through art to demonstrate an understanding and appreciation for a variety of cultures and art forms. The value of the project will be an exposure to diverse cultures and communities as well as provide the students with real life experience teaching inner city children art integrated lessons. The inner city students will be exposed to the college setting, facilities and will benefit from working with Elem. Ed. student teachers and experiencing art lessons that are lacking in their community school. Student teachers will be prepared and will receive support in writing , researching and preparing art lesson plans, stages of artistic development, learning styles, and topics for multicultural or art integration. (This activity will mainly focus on and be available for Elementary Education Majors.)
