Arts education is an experiential learning and it cultivates students’ creativity, curiosity and imagination. In our 5-day teacher training course on ‘Learning through Arts and Museums’ we offer participants a sustained and process-oriented content to deliver this teaching method in their own classroom.
This is a hands-on training in the use of arts and museums as learning tools and spaces. Participants will actually be working on specific art projects rather than just talking about it. Participants will learn about how to design their own lesson plans by incorporating elements of learning through arts and museums and explore specific topics. During the training sessions, participants will discover inquiry-based approaches of art and museum teaching strategies for classroom. By the end of the training, participants will present their own lesson plan or art projects and receive feedback from the audience.
By completing this course, participants will;
• Discover the concepts of arts in education and learning in museums
• Nurture creativity, imagination and expression
• Foster mental stimulation and problem-solving skills
