ARED 530: Art Production and Critical Pedagogy
Tasks related to teaching and to teacher roles. Value Proposition: Relationship of production to aesthetics and critical analysis of works of art. Over the past two decades, art education has shifted away from Discipline Based Art Education (DBAE) to a broader concern for visual arts and cultural issues. A shift to visual culture has come to represent not just a wider array of visual artifacts for study in the curriculum but also the examination of issues related to these artifacts, including the power of representation, the meanings of visual narratives, technological pervasiveness, and functions of creative production. Through studying visual culture, K-12 students can be empowered to move past passivity toward critically-aware citizens able to voice their own narratives through art.
