Art Teacher
 

University of Wisconsin-Stout Online professor of "Art for the Non-Art Teacher". This course is for all teachers and is designed to enhance art education at a time when the arts are threatened by the standardization of education and at risk of being cut from the core curriculum. The course will emphasize hands-on experience integrating the Elements of Art (line, shape, texture, value, color and space), followed by the Principles of Art (harmony, variety, contrast, balance, movement, and dominance), and Artistic Styles (realism, impressionism, pointillism, and surrealism) and strategies supportive of art integration as part of cross-curriculum instructional activities.
