Approval to teach art in grades seven through 12. Teaching minor in art requires ART 109 (can test out with departmental approval), 201, 215, 216, 217, 219, 361, one art history class (381, 382, 383), 396a, and three hours of art electives. In addition, this minor requires a teaching practicum. Please refer to Education Program for necessary course work.
ONLY THOSE STUDENTS WHO ARE PURSUING TEACHER LICENSURE MAY RECEIVE A TEACHING MINOR IN ART. Candidates for teaching licensure in both K-6 and 7-12 must practice teach in both levels.
All transfer students, whether pursuing a major, or a minor, in art, must take a three hour drawing course and one art history course. Sophomore review of work will be held in November or in April. This review will assist the department faculty in advising the student on possible directions for future study and career focus.
Portfolio and electronic portfolio, credential materials including cover letter, resume and written philosophy of art, coupled with the senior exhibit will serve as the capstone for a student’s educational experience. Each graduating art major, with faculty assistance, will select one work that will become part of the Iowa Wesleyan College permanent collection.
