Art History


Designing an Art Center

For this Assignment, you will design an age appropriate art center by  completing the Unit 4 Template. Include at least 2 to 3 sentences  addressing each topic.

You have read about and discussed the basic goals, setup, materials,  and strategies, including specific two-dimensional and three-dimensional  activities, for an early childhood art program. Now you can apply this  knowledge to this Assignment.

Your art center will be for one of the following specific age groups of children:

  • older toddlers, 2 to 3 years
  • preschoolers, 3 to 5 years
  • young school age children, 5 to 8 years

In addition, you will be asked to describe the four topics from the  template and discuss in more detail how they can best help you address  in more detail the cultural backgrounds and diverse needs of children.  Why did you choose them? Make sure these address the core of DAP. You  are encouraged to integrate additional material from the course  resources and document the sources for your content.

Important: This Assignment is designed to measure the following Course Outcome:

CE410-3: Use knowledge of the cultural background and diverse needs of children in planning and implementing activities and experiences.

That is interpreted in this Assignment as being able to demonstrate  superior ability to use knowledge of the cultural background and diverse  needs of children in planning and implementing activities and  experiences. You are not planning activities, but you are planning an  art center where great activities can happen!

In designing your art center, the emphasis should be on two things.

1. First, you need to share specific information about how you will  address the diversity in the center. Diversity involves all the  differences in our children including, but not limited to, learning  styles, abilities, disabilities, cultural, and family backgrounds.

2. The second emphasis is closely related and deals with diversity as  it applies to providing developmentally appropriate practices (DAP).  This is evidenced by accommodations and modifications necessary to meet  the needs of all children by providing developmentally appropriate  practices that will make your art center successful for the age group  you’ve chosen for this Assignment.

Enjoy this Assignment! You get to imagine the best possible climate in which to teach art!
