EDU 508 - Nature-Based Art Education


This course will provide teachers and other professionals who work with PreK-12 populations with experiential learning in art education as related to Maine’s unique environment and natural settings. Offered in a hybrid format, participants will have opportunities to engage in art-based experiences in multiple outdoor settings followed by online sessions that encourage reflection, discussion, and application to their own work with children. Participants will explore a variety of media, tools, and techniques (fine and graphic arts); learn about and incorporate elements of art, principles of design, and color theory; and will consider the role of the nature-based art in personal development (“whole” learner) and in developing ecological consciousness. All activities of the course are aligned to Maine’s academic content standards.
