I am currently teaching grades 4-6 but have taught k-8. >What do you think needs to be covered in preservice art education >programs?
I think preservice art ed. programs have to include information and
research in HOW children learn, think, process information, etc and the
role the arts plays in all of those processes. i don't think it's enough
just to know the stages of art development anymore. You have to have an
understanding of the whole child, the whole brain and the whole process of
learning. Ultimately, that's why we're here.
