About the Saturday Art program
Miami University has been running the Saturday Art community art program for the Oxford community for many decades. The teachers for the program are Miami University art education students, enrolled in ART 495 (a required practicum experience prior to student teaching). Teachers decided upon a theme for the program, guiding questions for each of the weeks and then wrote a 6-week unit for the program around the guiding questions. Projects varied between classes. 2D and 3D media were included, vocabulary terms, historical and contemporary artist exemplars, and connections to Ohio visual art standards.
Students age 4 to adult can sign up. Each student will experience a range of creative projects in a variety of mediums. Classes are taught by junior and senior art education students as part of their practicum in art education. Classes are designed to challenge students at their own level and new lessons are presented each week based on the class theme. Previous experience in art is not required!
