Course Description

In this innovative 3-credit graduate-level course, educators will uncover the powerful potential of drawing as a tool to facilitate inclusive learning environments, tailoring education to the unique needs of diverse learners, including our multilingual learners. By focusing on the practical application of art in teaching, such as sketching vocabulary definitions, drawing biological structures and processes, and integrating art into mathematical concepts, educators will learn to stimulate comprehension and engagement among their students. Course participants will gain hands-on experience with drawing ideas and concepts, and identifying simple methods to weave this practice into their classrooms, thereby fostering their own creativity and that of their students.   This course employs the transformative power of creative arts as a catalyst to enhance retention, improve focus, and ignite student engagement.

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

  1. Recognize, comprehend, and appreciate the advantages of utilizing drawing as an educational tool
  2. Investigate and analyze the positive impacts of integrating drawing into the classroom curriculum to stimulate student creativity, memory, and engagement
  3. Formulate a comprehensive strategy for promoting a sense of community and collaboration within a classroom, school department, or the broader school community through the application of drawing techniques
  4. Apply drawing as a practice and observe its benefits through the utilization of a sketchbook, with an emphasis on integrating drawing into daily routines
