    Art for the Elementary Educator courses are sites of possibility in the field of art education, particularly art education oriented toward curriculum integration and meaningful art experiences. Drawing on literature about Art for the Elementary Educator courses and our own teaching experiences we make recommendations for reconsidering possible futures for this course as related to the future of art education. We believe that this course, its students, instructors, and course materials are worthy of sustained attention by the art education community. Ultimately, we argue that art education appreciation and advocacy, concepts we define in our concluding remarks, should be primary objectives for such classes. Reconsidering Art for the Elementary Educator in light of these ideas requires renewed examination of course content, student dispositions, instructor preparation, and teaching and learning resources

    The following paper offers a comprehensive historiography of the curricular trends and approaches for the teaching of elementary visual arts within the discourse of Art Education. The exploration begins with an overview of the modernist, Discipline Based Art Education curriculum, including its origins and implementation within the U.S., public K-8 school system. In this section I offer an assessment of DBAE???s curricular strengths and weaknesses. Next, the text moves into an examination of post-modern, contemporary curricular approaches to teaching visual arts, more specifically, the visual culture theory. With this, I introduce a discussion about the current reality of arts education within the urban, public school system of Chicago, Illinois. This section offers insight into current art education trends and exposes the discrepancy of resources for visual arts education among Chicago???s elementary institutions. Finally, I offer a sample visual arts curriculum designed to empower students to take responsibility for their learning and success

    I am an elementary education major and have a deep love for seeing children make connections, and learn about not only academics but moral values and life lessons. As much as I have learned in different classes over the past four years of my education, I have learned the most during my Practicum and Student Teaching experience as I really have gotten to run my own classroom.
