The teaching team consists of highly qualified academics who are passionate about the arts in education. If you are open-minded, creative and have a desire to explore learning through the arts in all forms – whether visual arts, poetry, music, singing and drama – then the Arts in Education course is for you. This year in response to the challenges posed by Covid-19, the Teacher Development Fund will focus on exploring how blended approaches, combining digital and face to face delivery, can enhance teacher continuing professional development in arts-based learning…. Examined the impact of the Guggenheim’s Learning Through Art programme on students’ ability to describe and interpret art, and to apply these skills to understanding written text.

  • If English isn’t your first language, you will need an IELTS score of6.5 with a 6.5 in writing and no element lower than 6.0to study this programme.
  • There were generally no effects on self-rating scales of confidence in social situations, except for one small effect on self-rated cooperation (Walsh-Bowers and Basso, 1999; Study 1).
  • The evidence is not compelling, getting compelling evidence is an ongoing challenge and it’s increasingly less important in making the case for the arts in education.
  • In Year 2 there is an opportunity to be placed in a community setting working with those involved in arts in education in different cultural contexts.
  • Arts engagement may offer opportunities to experience flow and therefore improved attention and concentration .

Watch this short documentary about SAFE, which was made by a work experience student. This MA addresses the historical, political, theoretical and ethical issues of applied theatre, and explores the ways in which theatre and performance are created by diverse groups of people. If you’re invited to interview, you may be asked to bring a small portfolio of work as a starting point for discussion, comprising of either current or past practice.

Systematic Review Article

A systematic review of 199 international studies suggests that arts education remains a moot point. 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. This gives the ABM programme a dynamic energy that enriches everyone’s educational experience. The module is an opportunity to learn and critically reflect on the skills of collaboration by enabling you to create a research-informed interdisciplinary project with students from complementary disciplines, or with academic staff. The structure of the course enables you to focus your research within the context of your own creative field and workplace. 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.

Students will write two essays in the first two terms as they work towards the execution of an independent research project in the third term. The evaluations did produce encouraging evidence of impact on outcomes that were ‘secondary’ in this study, but which are closer to the goals of many practitioners. Whether in social skills, self-efficacy or ‘ideation’ (the ability to express one’s ideas) there is evidence here for the potential of arts-based learning activities in Key Stage 2 to make a difference. However, the trials did not produce statistically significant evidence that the activities evaluated raised attainment in English. To be clear – participating in arts-based learning didn’t get in the way of attainment, it just didn’t raise attainment higher than the approaches schools might otherwise have taken. There is an appetite for collaboration between teachers and arts organisations, and for them to explore and improve their practice and the outcomes for young people.

Education & Learning Through The Arts

Some of these modules are also available to be taken as part of aContinuing Professional Development programme. Workshops can either be intensive and run daily for four to five weeks to build up to a performance, or be held as weekly sessions over a longer period of time to boost drama skills. Despite society collectively thinking so lowly of arts at an education level, it’s undeniable that most us go on to consume arts in a variety of forms throughout our lives, constantly.

‘Impact of arts education on the cognitive and non-cognitive outcomes of school-aged children. Impact of arts education on the cognitive and non-cognitive outcomes of school-aged children. The five activities evaluated as part of Learning About Culture were delivered at a scale far larger than most arts organisations usually operate, in order to give us the best chance of getting a clear indication of their impact. However, the results show that it continues to be difficult to achieve certainty about a causal relationship between arts-based learning and academic outcomes, even when evaluating at scale.

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. However, by screening previous reviews and additional publications by the authors of included papers, potential bias due to the search strategy was minimized as much as possible. They aim to drive greater access, continuous improvement & innovation in the field of cultural and creative education. We are an Arts Award centre,inspiring young people to grow their arts and leadership talents and gain a qualification which is creative, valuable and accessible.
