Two Art Education courses held at Oulu Lyseo Upper Secondary School, Finland in Fall 2017.
Art Education at Upper secondary school
The Structure of Teaching
The method that I follow when planning outline of the course is, that I give inspiration and knowledge at the beginning of the course. I have more lectures and small exercises on the beginning of the course and return to these ideas during the course. Also techniques I teach as the course proceeds.
Mandatory Course for all the students
The group was mix of different classes, so I tried to take that in consideration when planning the teaching. The curriculum emphasizes to explore art techniques and topic as wide as possible. So this course has certain type of freedom.
Advanced course – Drawing human
Outline for this course was to practice to draw people. We did multiple exercises to draw human from different perspectives; what is important? How can we present personalities?
