The goal of ArtOne is to develop the highest quality students who are demonstrably ready for college-level success. We serve those students with an experience that aligns with best practices in education today; more importantly we're always thinking about what comes next for our students.
To that end, we have focused our curriculum on the development of evidence of readiness within the three key universally recognized learning domains: practice (psycho-motor), engagement (affective), and thought (cognitive), each are detailed below with our clearly stated outcomes.
Students with good practice habits are able to generate work that improves as mastery improves. Within the practice domain, we focus on building skills that create depth and breadth through experiences in the studio that evolve into focused work in art, design or media. Students learn to apply skills, manage practice and develop their vision for the future.
These ideas are supported by the Art Studio courses (ARTS) and the following outcome statements:
An engaged student is one that welcomes the opportunity to share and learn, understanding that a community of input provides the resources for a rich career as a creative. The engagement domain is a critical one for developing the student for future success by learning their communities, engaging networks and sharing results.
These ideas are supported by the Pro Studio course (PROS) and the following outcome statements:
Thoughtful students have the capacity to plan for the future - to manage their academic career and what comes after. Within the domain of thought, we focus on scaffolding the curriculum to incrementally build the students' ability to develop a solid knowledge base, interpret and organize new information, and generate their own ideas.
These ideas are supported by the Art History/Theory courses (ARTH) and the following outcome statements:
