Course Description

Visual Arts: The Visual Arts Curriculum in Action

Hibernia College

This course explores the two-dimensional and three-dimensional strands of the Visual Arts curriculum, providing a step-by-step approach to a range of activities for teachers. Planning and assessment of visual arts work in the classroom is also discussed. This course will begin by looking at the many perceived difficulties that teachers often cite as reasons for not implementing the Visual Arts curriculum in its entirety and suggests possible solutions to these.

The course then explores the potential of the two-dimensional strands of the curriculum and suggests a wide range of process-oriented activities in drawing, paint and printmaking for all class levels. The curriculum strands of Clay, Construction and Fabric are explored under the heading of three-dimensional art and a wide variety of process-oriented activities are suggested for all class levels.

The potential of the second strand unit of the curriculum, Looking at and responding to art, will then be explored and a step-by-step approach to this aspect of the curriculum will be presented for use at all class levels. The planning of visual arts, both at school and classroom level, is addressed through the design of thematic units of work. Finally, the evaluation and assessment of visual arts work in schools is explored.
