During the fifty-hour field experience, preservice art education students work directly with a mentor teacher in the classroom fostering an understanding of the intellectual and artistic growth of elementary school children. In an immersive field experience, application of practical issues such as classroom management, budgeting, and community engagement are observed by the student, building an informed understanding of pedagogical practices needed for a professional career at the elementary school level. Successful completion of the field experience will be in accordance with the Colorado Performance Based Standards for Teachers and the Colorado Academic Standards: Visual Arts.
