ART 513-610 – Teaching for Artistic Behavior (Professional Renewal)

A Colorado Conference + Classroom Application

This course will require participants to explore the themes presented at the 2018 Teaching for Artistic Behavior Conference with further readings, research and reflexive writings.

In this two-day workshop, participants will be introduced to Teaching for Artistic Behavior (TAB), also known as Choice-Based Art Education, which is a style of teaching that emphasizes individual strengths and fosters creativity in carefully constructed environments designed for student-directed learning. Activities will include a keynote presentation by Diane Jaquith, and other presentations by Anne Thulson, Connie Stewart and Dale Zalmstra. Concepts will include providing context, use of contemporary art and a discussion of expression in the choice classroom. The conference will include break-out sessions for newcomers, experienced TAB teachers, and different grade levels.

Participants will submit a written reflection and a paper about how they have connected their new learnings to their classroom. Course will be graded S/U upon completion of requirements.
