Content

In this unit, engagement with online study materials and participation in practical workshops and seminars will enable students to critically appraise current trends in creative arts teaching, learning and research in early childhood settings.  Students will explore their own artistic practice and aesthetic responding to enhance their understanding of theoretical frameworks that support creative expression and art making. They will apply this knowledge in planning teaching and learning programs that support young children's engagement in visual art and media art. In this process students devise ways to foster imaginative and creative play through which young children, by exploring, imagining, experimenting and thinking, express ideas about themselves and their worlds. Students will identify teaching approaches and strategies for supporting learning in relevant early childhood educational settings and will observe during professional placements how children develop their creative and aesthetic understandings. They will build on the concept that children's exploration and development of interwoven narratives and visual symbols enable them to express their ideas and feelings and give artistic form to thought, and imagination through play based and intentional learning. They will design and develop a Creative Arts art program that supports the intellectual, social and cultural development of the whole child.
