Akshara Foundation of Arts & Learning was born with a dream to enrich the life of every child by infusing the arts into the process of learning. 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.
  • 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.

Our exhibitions and artist led projects provide a framework for events which bring together individuals and organisations inside and outside of the arts to engage in debate and creative practice. Our work is particularly focused on issues of social inclusion and diversity and seeks to engage with global issues while being rooted in the history of our locality. Through this module you will continue to develop and consolidate your praxis and position as artist teacher.

This degree has partnerships with international galleries including Tate Modern, the Whitechapel Gallery and the Showroom Gallery. Students use sketchbooks to record, from first- hand experience, their personal responses to the Renaissance works of art, thus developing their critical appraisal skills and adding to their knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice of art. In 2018 a landmark research project commissioned by Arts Council England, and undertaken by the University of Nottingham, called Tracking Learning and Engagement in the Arts outlined the overwhelmingly positive benefits of arts and cultural education for young people. The research drew from the experience and voices of thousands of young people and their teachers in secondary and special schools.

We have pulled together some of these voices and findings from TALE and other research, as well as helpful resources on studying art. Anddefined pedagogies that have the biggest impact of pupils’ academic, social, artistic and emotional progress. The researchers from the University of Nottingham and Goldsmith College London identified 5 Creative Habits of Mind. OpportUNIty ensures that our students are given a first opportunity to fill many part-time temporary positions within the University. It will also allow you to become more involved in University life by delivering, leading and supporting many aspects of the learning experience, from administration to research and mentoring roles.

Imagining The Future Together

Our students come from diverse phases and sectors in the field of art and design education and the expanded fields of gallery, community and self organised educational practices. Through the course individual perspectives and experiences meet with those of your peers providing you with the stimulation and challenges that different perceptions can bring. We seek to evolve a dialogue through direct experience and engagement with the arts and their value as taught subjects, both within the institution and outside of it. That schools consider teaching art & design at Key Stage 1 and 2 as a distinct subject. Whilst we appreciate many schools approach art in a project or theme-based manner, our experience is that when art is taught as a distinct subject in a skills-based manner there is clearer progression and the teaching and learning is more rigorous.

We Are The National Society For Education In Art And Design

By creating a safe and nurturing environment, pupils are encouraged to take creative risks and to learn from the journey, rather than head towards a pre-defined end result. Basic skills are introduced and then built upon, including drawing, printmaking, sketchbooks, painting and making. Skills are revisited and the use of ongoing sketchbook work underpins this process.

The purpose of the Professional Placement is to improve your employability skills which will, through the placement experience, allow you to evidence your professional skills, attitudes and behaviours at the point of entry to the postgraduate job market. Our students practice as artists, gain promotion within the field of education, pursue research or take a sideways step into another arts education related context. The structure of the course enables you to focus your research within the context of your own creative field and workplace.

Our alumni community stay involved with the University such as through reunion events, and mentoring programmes, by offering placements, and as international ambassadors. We encourage you to complete your application as early as possible, even if you haven’t finished your current programme of study. It’s very common to be offered a place that is conditional on you achieving a particular qualification.

We are the leading voice for art, craft & design education across all sectors, all phases, throughout the UK and beyond. That teachers should not be afraid to be seen to be learning alongside the children – in fact this can be a very positive role model for children.
