The focus of this course is on preparing to be a teacher of visual arts at the Intermediate/Senior level. You will learn about the Ontario visual arts curriculum, lesson design, and instructional approaches as they relate to secondary school studio work and the critical analysis of art work. As a developing visual arts instructor, you will learn how to teach students about the elements and principles of design, and how to encourage your class to apply these techniques creatively and expressively to communicate emotions, or comment on contemporary issues. Different forms of media, alternative media, and the use of technologies will also be examined, for both two-dimensional and three-dimensional art works.
