The Indiana University Saturday Art School Program provides an opportunity for children to experience visual arts instruction in supportive small group settings and a chance for IU School of Education students majoring in Art Education an opportunity to practice their teaching skills. Sessions are taught by Art Education students and supervised by Art Education faculty and graduate students.
The popular program has become a well-known tradition among Bloomington families, but as you will see in this short video it provides an invaluable learning experience for new teachers. Saturday Art takes place over five weekends and concludes with an exhibition and open house on the 6th week. All classes meet at the IU School of Education’s Wright Education Building. Saturday Art School activities involve basic artistic processes and are designed around a new theme each term.
