This course explores contemporary views of how visual arts relate to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics - STEAM. By exploring the practices of visual arts through the Studio Habits of Mind framework, and by exploring oneself as an artist, students will develop understandings about visual arts and the teaching and learning in STEM. Students will consider the intersections of STEM practices with the artistic habits of mind, specifically in relation to inquiry, expression, engagement and persistence, and assessment. Students will make art by exploring the methods and materials artists use, they will develop stances on how visual arts enhance teaching and learning, and they will consider the implications for STEAM in K-12 classroom environments. Students will learn to emphasize the artistic approach in the STEM disciplines and how to exploit the possibilities that STEAM presents.
