We do appreciate that art provides an excellent way to enrich the currciulum and link to other curriculum areas. Links to themes or projects can still be made, but from a position of far greater strength and understanding. Our artistic programme provides a platform for participation, exchange and dialogue for artists, our partners and diverse audiences.

  • We believe that creativity matters, and we want to see the creative skills of learners developed across the school curriculum.
  • It is important that we can support you appropriately, so you will be guided towards choosing a research topic which is relevant to your discipline and in which your lecturers have expertise.
  • Thus, channelising their creativity and giving them the opportunity to ride over the limitations around them.
  • Ofsted recognises that work which looks great at first glance can often hide poor learning outcomes.
  • Through this study you build independent research leading to your major project that can be focused through educational models, workshops, creative practice and encounters that inform and are responsive to art educational contexts.
  • Placements also give you the chance to meet and network with people in the education sector and creative industries.

Pupils or teachers sharing areas of expertise with other classes to build knowledge and confidence within the school. It was really when I was at art school that I started to see the relationship between history, philosophy, politics and art. Prior to that I thought that art was just making pretty pictures – actually art is connected to life. 2018 is an artwork by collective practice They Are Here commissioned by the Schools and Teachers team at Tate. The inspiration for the artwork was prompted by Mo, a 14 year old workshop participant who told the artists that ‘art is dead’.

Birmingham School of Art is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for art-based learning and research. We have a unique art education archive relating to the Arts and Crafts Movement, and Marion Richardson, amongst others. Our pioneering MA Arts and Education Practices course focuses on the exploration of educational models at the intersection of practice, teaching and pedagogic theory. The only Arts Education MA in the UK based in a School of Art, we provide a unique platform for the art educator….

Communication, but also translation and interpretation intended from a linguistic, visual, cultural, artistic and curatorial perspective, are crucial when working internationally with different communities. This module is for those students who aim at working and researching in a transcultural global environment more critically and effectively. Having moved with the Music Service from the Local Authority into Edsential, I am really excited to have been asked to review the cultural offer from our organisation, including the creative and performing arts in Edsential Residential Service. As designated Deputy Safeguarding Lead for Edsential as well as continuing my Advisory role, I am passionate about promoting engaging, safe activities for children and young people. This module aims to convey the alternative histories of art and design education from the fifteenth century to the present day. In the context of the relationship between arts practice, art educational practices and the influence of broad educational beliefs upon the nature of art education a number of narrative themes are introduced.

Studying With Us During The Covid

You will be supported by a highly professional staff team, doctoral researchers, technical demonstrators and artists in residence in a innovative, creative and supportive environment. Innovative community of experienced and aspiring art educators, welcoming those willing to critique current practices to ask not only how we should teach art, but also how art can teach us. This also enables part-time and full-time students to attend the same evening teaching sessions and therefore form a collaborative and supportive learning environment. To enable greater flexibility for you and more equitable experience for full-time and part-time students, the MA arts and learning programme has a modular structure, with the majority of teaching sessions usually conducted in the evenings. You’ll be part of a diverse student community, and will have the opportunity to develop and maintain collaborative peer networks and support.

The University, however, will draw on its extensive network of local, regional and national employers to support you in finding a suitable placement to complement your chosen area of study. You will also benefit from support sessions delivered by Careers+ as well as advice and guidance from your School. All students can sign up to the online learning language platform for free through the Graduate+ scheme.

Young people and their teachers are also enthused by working with creative practitioners in the classroom, inspiring new ideas and approaches to the arts across the curriculum. This programme has delivered positive results through the professional development of teachers’ practice and improved skills, knowledge and motivating strategies for learning. This diversity provides you with an opportunity to study with people from diverse social, cultural and ethnic backgrounds and who bring a wealth of experience to the programme.

Archive Project: Sensuous Discoveries

I was born in the Isle of Man and I am very proud of my Manx heritage and the inspired music in schools and at home which led me to become a member of folk groups, choirs and orchestras, as well as numerous stage performances. These courses are aimed at raising attainment in the Creative and Performing Arts and support schools with their formal GCSE and A Level syllabuses. The course is open to all ages and levels of experience and is available in our residential centres in Anglesey, North Wales and Cheshire.
