The aim of the programme is to train artists in the method of instruction and to strengthen their skills and academic foundation, allowing them to communicate their knowledge in a new forum and lead artistic projects within the educational system and outside of it. The Art Education programme is composed of workshops in instructional theory, pedagogy, psychology, philosophy and sociology, parallel to teacher training and artistic communication in a classroom setting.
An emphasis is placed on students acquiring knowledge and understanding of the teaching profession, both academically and in the classroom. Students learn to plan instruction and individual study components on the basis of the curricula of primary and secondary schools, and to select study materials, instruction methods and the appropriate methods of evaluation. Teaching and communication are also examined in a broader context and students are encouraged to introduce their own visions and ideas about art instruction and programme availability in society.
The programme is organised with the goal of training leading art instructors, whereby artists in various art forms work together and parallel to each other on solutions relating to instructional theory. As each student focuses on his/her specialty, continuous dialogue is generated between different art forms which opens the doors for collaboration between them, and thereby new opportunities in art instruction.
