Clinical Experience- Studio Pedagogy
Over the course of six Saturdays, Northern Illinois University offered an art program for community youth called Art Express. Students were in two hour classes with peers in their age group for these six weeks, with a public art exhibition on the last Saturday. The Spring of 2017's Art Express theme was "The Little Adventurer" with art lessons relating to this theme over the span of several mediums.
During my Art Express experience, I had the pleasure of co-teaching fifteen 7 and 8 year olds (mostly 2nd and 3rd grade students) from around the Northern Illinois area.
