EDUC 476 Atelierista Studies: Studio Research in ECCE




This course explores artistic ways of knowing and researching in early childhood contexts. The major emphasis will be on the characteristics of artistic processes; how these processes compose a critical and relational inquiry; and how artistic processes are connected to daily life. Students will be encouraged to explore art forms; consider exemplars of artistic, visual, image-based and studio-based educational research; generate and investigate images; and consider what it means to engage in artful thinking and aesthetic approaches. The course offers the opportunity to consider alternative forms of educational research, understand the arts as a mode of inquiry, and to conceptualize the early childhood art studio as a space of research.


45 credits of 100-level or higher coursework including EDUC 277 and EDUC 373; and ENGL 100 as a pre- or corequisite
