Course Description

MAT 800: The Artist as Educator Experience (Post-Bacc to MAT Pipeline)



PBAE Graduates explore the tools they will need to keep their artistry alive. They also learn how to digitize evidence of artistic and teaching performance. During the independent study, online course, or BFA studio course-audit experience, PBAE Graduates explore key personal dispositions of the artist-educator, personal identity, and unique self-qualities, and they articulate how these qualities shape their lives as artists and creative educators. During their studio practice exploration (audit, cohort, or independent), PBAE Graduates develop and expand on studio art practices as they continue to explore the artist/educator theme. By examining personal learning goals, they select an art form to study that either supplements or expands their existing repertoire. PBAE Graduates create a digital art collection either for an exhibit or in preparation for the digital portfolio of at least two completed works, and prepare a final reflection that examines the strengths and challenges of maintaining high-quality teaching while continuing to work as practicing artists.
