Description

In this student-centered book, Debrah C. Sickler-Voigt provides proven tips and innovative methods for teaching, managing and assessing all aspects of art instruction and student learning in today’s diversified educational settings, from pre-K through high school. Up to date with the current National Visual Arts Standards, this text offers best practices in art education, and explains current theories and assessment models for art instruction.

Using examples of students’ visually stunning artworks to illustrate what children can achieve through quality art instruction and practical lesson planning, Teaching and Learning in Art Education explores essential and emerging topics such as:

  • Managing the classroom in art education
  • Artistic development from early childhood through adolescence
  • Catering towards learners with a diversity of abilities
  • Integrating technology into the art field
  • Understanding drawing, painting, paper arts, sculpture and textiles in context

Alongside a companion website offering PowerPoint presentations, assessments and tutorials to provide ready-to-use-resources for professors and students, this engaging text will assist teachers in challenging and inspiring students to think creatively, problem-solve, and develop relevant skills as lifelong learners in the art education sector.
