Our students develop lesson plans inspired by student interest, contemporary art, and social justice. Luther art educators prepare to work with diverse learners from varied backgrounds.
Luther art educators will leave the program empowered to bring contemporary art into their K-12 teaching. Our art educators meet the standards and are relevant by incorporating “Art of the Now” into their lesson plans.
Our students are able to work on a semester-long project between Luther students and Decorah middle schoolers. Inspired by a Decorah district-wide exploration of “Compassion” as a theme, this project is part of our curriculum. Our students present their lesson plans explored throughout various phases the project.
Below are some lessons by current Luther pre-service art educators or recent alumni.
